Hi there. I have 2 sets of redundant CSS11501's performing non http loadbalancing for my server farms. What's the general recommendation for migrating off this platform? I don't need http loadbalancing, and I'm looking to simplify the networking equipment and setup requirements (not sure if that's even possible)by migrating to 6500 series platform.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Honestly I don't see what you could simplified.

If you already have a cat6k and would like to use a module to save some rack space, I can see a small reason.

But having the loadbalancer inside the switch can make the configuration more complex.

The ACE module comes with tool to convert the config from css or csm.
