Hi all...What's required from our side to bring about (preferably) Active/Active with seamless failover if we deploy a pair of routers followed by a pair of firewalls at our network perimeter.
To achieve redundancy on the routers, we can use Cisco HSRP with SNAT but though, this gives us redundancy it might not give us Active/ Active scenario. Is there a better option?
Do we need to involve ISP for achieving an active/active scenario if we have asked them to provide us with two MPLS lines of 8MB each, going on each router FE interface?
The reason we asked for two circuits was to use one as a standby in case the primary goes down but If we can use both at the same time, that would be better, given that we are paying for them anyways.
And then, how do I connect the two ASA 5520s to match the failover configuration of the routers beyond?
I am basically looking at design clues, I wonder, how easy would it be to depict the ensuing diagram in text?
But still...all suggestions welcome.
