We are in the process of redesigning the core.
There are several ideas.
The one I like the best is:
720's in each
and bridge the 2 together as one switch, not sure of the exact terminology.
Basically want it to look like a switch stack. Admin from one connection to both devices.
The question is, if we lose one sup will layer 2 still work on the chassis that lost the blade?
What controls the layer 2 function on the switches?
Is the MSFC configured on each side or is it configured on one side and pushed to the other side, kind of like the 3750 stack?
What I am looking for is a redundant core, available all the time. The other idea is 2 seperate set-up's running HSRP, which I am fine with, but do not feel it is the best set-up for us.
Also, at this point money is not really an issue, I know sounds almost too good to be true!
