ACI and DC Firewall

Hello,

I want to propose a solution for one of our customer which contains ACI. I will use N7K as Core swithces while the N9K and ACI controller for DC layer only.

The setup will be like this:

N7K === N7K  (Core)

II                II

N9K === N9K ( Service Leafs)

II               II

N9K === N9K ( Spines)

II                II

N9K === N9K ( Servers Leafs)

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

[Servers]

The question is where I should connect the FW. Most likely, We will use Palo Alto FW as DC FW and we will integrate with ACI.

Please advise.

Hi,

  I believe that it depends on how are you thinking the role of that FW, are you using the Firewall as gateway? is a pure L2 transparent box? We had another firewall solution in place, at the beginning we have a connection to it in the nexus 7K layer but now we had deployed L3/L2 outs in common to send the traffic thru the FW, i believe the best option is to connect it to leafs and handle traffic with l2/l3 outs as per your convenience.

HTH,
