I currently have 2 2821 routers, one for our WAN and the other for the Internet. I have redundant connections for both routers, with administrative distance failover. The CIO now wants me to implement HARDWARE HA, in effect having a router on standby in the event that one of the 2821 units fails so no connectivity is ever lost.
Now I know about redundant circuits (I configured these) but don't know what to do about making the actual hardware redundant. Can this even be done with 2821 units?
AFAIK, the second device can be a hot/cold standby with/without WAN cards etc. Incase if situation arises (one goes down and other won't pickup), you move the connections, cards and config to new router and bring it into to production. Based on budget, you can even buy WICs, power up and ready with configurations- so the production down time will be less.
