Network Design Question - Server Farm / Backbone

Hi,

I am trying to find the arguments against connecting the server farm directly into the Core backbone switches of a medium sized LAN.

the design i am completing has server farm access switches which have Gige uplinks to the core, rather then having server going stright into a blade on a 6500

Thanks

Re: Network Design Question - Server Farm / Backbone

Having your servers connect directly into your collapsed core switch is less scalable than having a separate switch-block dedicated to your server farm.
