DR Site as backup

Hello!

A company has a central DC site at location A with DR site connected to it via fiber link. It has brance offices at locations B, C and D. Now I want a solution where If Site A fails the traffic seamlessly routes to the DR site. What could be the best design for this scenario how should the branch offices be connected to Central site and the DR site. It can be done via MPLS right? but please tell me what other options do we have to provide connectivity.

Hi

In this case DC and DR site should be connected with the SP cloud and always DC path will act as primary path. All the branch locations come on SP cloud and in will find the two routes and primary will be made for DC. That all depends on the routing. Back to back DR adn DC is connected over fiber for backups and all kind of stuff.

BGP is the best to use as routing protocol.

Thanks for the reply Shivlu. What else can be used inside the CLOUD if MPLS cannot be the option.
