One of my client is using Two 3 com core switches running VRRP as next hop redundancy protocol. This is a bank so there are a lot of servers connected directly to both the core switches. The requirement is that they are virtualizing their servers as they are going to increase the number of servers. The client is planning to go for 4 Physical hosts where all the Virtual servers will be deployed. For redundancy there will be two physical uplinks (copper/Fiber) from each physical host to the each of the core switch running VRRP.
As the new applications which are going to be deployed on the virtual Machines are very critical, The client wants a Ten Gig solution for the connectivity (Physical hosts -> Core Switches ). The current 3 com core switches does not support 10G connectivity.
Please find more details below:
1. All the Vlan data base are created on the Core switches.
2. The critical traffic is mainly between the Servers (Different Vlans).
a. No of existing servers:20
b. No of existing Vlans for the servers: 12
c. No of proposed VM servers: 80
d. No of proposed Vlans for the Servers: 12.
1. A cat 4500/6500 switch with respective 10G modules which will act as the core Switch.
2. A top of the rack switch (Cisco 4900 series switch) where all the physical Hosts will connect on 10G and then connect to the existing 3 com core switches on copper Etherchannel.
Could any one please assist me with a cost effective solution from Cisco to meet the client's requirement.
Thank you for your valuable inputs. Really sorry for the very delayed response. Was on a long vaccation
Can I Have a pair of Nexus 5548UP with Nexus 2248TP with vPC ?
Nexus 5548UP will be the Core with L3 daughter card where all the Physical hosts along with the SAN will be connected (10G - FCOE). The Nexus 2248TP (Fabric Extenders) will be used for future expansion and also to connect (10G) to the Acess Switches (2960S) where all the users will be loacated.
