Current setup is x2 CSS11051 which works in an active:active configuration (one customer busines are on each but with mutual failover over multiple vlans).
Requirement is to add x2 SCA2's 11000 for SSL offloading. From the documentation I think that the the best configuration will be one-armed transparent proxy. I need to confirm a couple a couple of things:
- that it is possible to load balance to the SCA devices (and allow for the failure of one SCA and with no discernable disruption to service).
- is it okay to post the config so someone to scan through to check the setup for i/ load balancing to the SCA and then ii/ subsequent load balancing to the web servers.
- why separate vlans are needed for each SCA ?
A colleaque of mine is favouring having an SCA aligned to a CSS and in the event of an SCA failure that the second CSS senses this and fails over. Not sure if this is possible, I personally favour one-armed transparent approach.
Any recommendations would be great, I just cant see resiliant CSS's and SCA's examples documented anywhere.
