primary site presently has a data center 100 feet away. There are 12 fiber strands coming from the primary site to the dc. Presently there's a 3560 switch stack in the dc. There's 2 6509 core's at the primary site. Each core switch has six fiber connections on each dedicated for the dc. The primary site and the dc are currently connected with a fiber port-channeled configuration. A majority of the equipment at the dc are windows servers. All data, one phone, no video.
remove the 3560 switch stack and deploy two 6509's (1 dual sup32, 1 dual sup720 w/ dual ACE10-6500-K9 mod and keep the existing subnets in effort to not re-ip all servers. For redundancy, purchased dual power supplies and dual sup's. We'd like to have a configuration on the dc switches (new 6509's) were we can take on an entire switch failure and be able to stay up utilizing the other. Load-balance where possible.
Im pursuing any insight on configuration/design recommendations and/or feedback for this task. Let me know if you need any clarity.
