CSS Newbie - Modules required for One-Legged topology
I'm looking to setup a system to load balance 12 http web application servers which talk to a backend database cluster. The servers are connected to top of rack 4948 switches which are dual homed to a pair of 6500 chassis for resilience.

My question is does this sound sensible and would I need any other module in the CSS11503 other than the SCM?

embedded databases synchronized in real time. Therefore, when the active
DCNM is not functioning, the standby DCNM will...
