I have a question regarding BGP. I have 2 dirrerent ISP that attach to their own router. We currently have radware boxes that act as VRRP. The boxes are old and would like to use a different method. I am trying to find the best way to load balance and protect myself from any hardware failure. I been researching HRSP, VRRP and GLBP. Which scenerio is recommened for what I am trying to accomplish? Any advice will be appreciated.
Thanks for your quick response. Let me ask you a quick question. If I run HSRP, that means that one of my connections will be on stanby until the primary fails. Will this only affect when going out? So any request to the Internet will be serviced by only one ISP? Or will BGP balance the load? What about when the outside tries to connect to us? Will they be able to select the best path either ISP A or ISP B?
You should possibly use our Elfiq LB products (www.elfiq.com/Products/Models/Models-Comparison.aspx')">http://www.elfiq.com/Products/Models/Models-Comparison.aspx). They are much more affordable then Radware's. The low end LB-550E (2 links; 30 Mbps) is priced at $2,495. The high end LB-4000 (>2 links; 1.2 Gbps) is priced at $17,995.
Inbound and outbound traffic will be balanced between your 2 ISP. Routers will not balance traffic between links, but will usually work in failover. The secondary link is not used unless the main one fails.
As for an Elfiq implementation, it is much easier. For most implementations, our customers fill in the required data in the attached Excel Pre-Configuration Spreadsheet and e-mail it back to us. Elfiq then pre-configures the unit(s) and delivers it to the proper address(es). You then insert Elfiq between your firewall(s) and your routers/modems.
Furthermore , Elfiq products are very secure since they are designed at layer 2 and require no IP adresses. Hackers do not know that an Elfiq device is installed and therefore cannot hack it.
Do not hesitate to contact me for further information.
