Imagine I need to make a switch available to accomodate communications for server-to-server "private" networks, which are used between servers in order to control heartbeats, load balancing, etc.
Currently I have in place a Cisco 24x port hub. I am assessing what type of Cisco switch should be a good replacement for this. My understanding is that this type of NIC communication requires minimal bandwidth.
Please suggest a switch for this. It requires no fancy Layer 3 feature.
2960 will best serve your requirement. It comes in different models and port density.
