I am working on a design to provide 10G server aggregation link for our network. Basic idea is to connect the servers to this 10G server aggregation switch which is turn connectes to the main 6509 cores. The idea to introduce this server aggregation layer was to conserve intercabinet cabling. Now I came across some model
I am looking for somewhere around 10 ports atleast per switch that can support 10G hence the above choices.
Now my queries are
*I have a STP domain running on PVST, does Nexus support that? If not can Rapid-PVST+ and PVST coexist?
*I dont want the devices to become single point of failure,so is there any known and dependable HA option incase I can put two device per cabinet( like VSS)
Please help with my queries.
