I am searching for case study(s) or any documentation for that matter. That might show a good business and technological case study for migrating from a 6500 (or other) based data center infrastructure onto a NEXUS 7000 infrastructure.
What are you plans for your data center CORE switches?
As you stated is correct about Nexus 7K lacking service modules, are you going to keep a device in the CORE to handle services (ie 6500) there? Or will you move towards utilizing external appliances (ASA) in conjunction with the 7K?? Another option would be to use 6500 for services and extend it off of the 7K in the core. What I call, services on a stick approach.
Your thoughts and any non propriatary documentation is greatly appriciated!!!
The Nexus platform will be utilized strictly to provide a High Performace Network POP access point for Enterprise Backup and Backend Solution. Our network infrastructure is desiged around a security zone, therefore the Backup/Backend networks will be seperated via an Juniper Firewall.
Toward the Frond End Network (Distribution), we have placed several 6500 (Paired), with Cisco ACE module to provide Load-balancing for the application. Each Front End network has a pair of Juniper Firewalls to protect the data and again to apply the security zone. We have deployed VSS in each of the Front End network segements.
Each firewall pair from the Front End zone has a connection to a pair of 6500 (Core/DMZ Zone) which has connections to INTRANET, Extranet, and Internet/peering partners.
