I need to implement a load balancing solution pretty soon and I would like some ideas regarding topology, design and methodology.
This is what I have:
1.) Two 7600 Aggregation routers with 4500 L2 server farm switches hanging off of them in a looped topology.
2.) Load balancers (either an ACE module or an ACE appliance).
3.) 4 vlans with a cluster of DNS servers in one, a cluster of DHCP in another, and 2 application server clusters in the 3rd and 4th.
What I need to know is what approahes I can take regarding routing methodology, L2 adjacency, general approach, connectivity, etc.
I know this is a loaded question, but if I can get 2 or 3 complete solutions from the folks on this board, that would be awesome!
Im about to board aplane, so I cant respond to queries until about 3 hours or so.
