Starting a new business: need help about networking
I'm starting a business in web hosting and ASP(email services and HR services).
I need help about the right architecture for my network. I don't want to buy bandwidth from ISP but I prefer to setup my network.. I will have about 10 servers(2 for DNS, 2 for mail, 1 for LDAP, 1 linux web hosting, 1 IIS server, 1 server for applications) and a SAN storage solution.
I need to setup my network : which router and firewall is the right for my architecture, which switch I need to buy, what is the best architecture for this : rouer, firewall, switch,10 servers.
Re: Starting a new business: need help about networking
What do you mean you don't want to buy bandwidth from ISP? If you are setting up a business that needs internet connection, you need to connect to ISP. Either you want to build your own network (data centre) you still need to connect to ISP, unless you can afford to connect directly to an IXs or Global Carriers and they allow you to transit to them.
But if you mean you don't want to host your server in an ISP data centre, let me tell you the benefits of hosting your servers in ISP data centre. They have redundant power source, UPS, air-con, 24x7 operator, 24x7 helpdesk, 24x7 monitoring system, 24x7 security, FM 200 fire protection.
You need to contact a system integrator company to provide you the complete architecture so that you get it right the first time.
