data center network should be simple.
I think you agree with this.
so i think data center netowrk should use staic route first, and i think static route is enough for data center network.
staic route with hsrp and firewall(failover) can get high availablity.
i always persuade my customer use staic route, not dynamic routing protocol.
i think staic route is more simple and ease use than dynamic routing protocol.
data center network should be steady, simple netowkr is more steady, ease maintenance.
so i think data center network should use staic route first.
and the second question:
do you want data center firewall running dynamic routing protocol like ospf?
i think data center firewall must use staic route. because data center firewall running dynamic routing protocol is not steady, i think more software bug or other question exist if firewall running dynamic routing protocol.
do you think so?
so my data center network desigh opinion is:
data center network should use staic route.
static w/ hsrp and firewall failover can get high availability.
data center firewall should use staic route, not dynamic routing protocol.
firewall runing dynamic routing protocol is not a good idea.
is there any data center network desigh guideline or principle (especially routing protocol choice, firewall running mode)?
how about your opinion?
