5 APICs in Multi-Pod

Hi community

 

If I have a 5 APICs to be deployed for Multi-Pod (2 Pods), is it recommended to deploy all as active or leave one as standby?

Hi @tuanquangnguyen 

Short answer: 4 APICs + 1 Standby (supported starting with 4.1.1). Reason: because you avoid total loss of shards in case of POD hw failure where the three APICs are deployed. 

For a detailed response, please have a look here: https://community.cisco.com/t5/application-centric/operation-process-in-case-of-apic-cluster-failure/m-p/4062605 

 

Stay safe,

Sergiu
