I have a customer who has an existing data centre that does basic server load-balancing using CSS11500's. They are now looking to implement another data centre to give them redundancy and the abaility to load-balance the traffic betweenthe sites. At the new site they will need similar load-balancing functionality to what they already have (apologies for lack of detail here - I have just been told its 'basic'). I am currently designing the network and would like to know how the CSS switches compare to the 6500 ACE module, what are the pro's and cons of each?
Any help would be really appreciated - I don't have any knowledge/experience of CSS/ACE aside from knowing that they can distribute traffic amongst servers :-(
