Data Center InterConnect with Dark Fibre

Dear all,

We are designing a Data Center InterConnection for our two Data Centers on top of a 10G Dark Fibre.

Our primary goal is to:-

  • extend a few vlans between the two DCs;
  • Support VMware vMotion betwen the two DCs;
  • asymmetric SAN synchronization;
  • FCoE for SAN connectivity between the two DCs;

So may I ask if we could run both LAN and SAN connections on this DF connection? We have NX5K on one DC and NX7K on the other, are there specific devices required to enable both LAN and SAN connections?

It would be really appreciated if anyone could shed any lights on this. Any suggestions are welcome!

Best Regards,

James Ren
