design network topology and upgradation from 1G to 10G

Hi,

 

we are in process to upgrade Network bandwidth from 1G to 10G with eliminating single point of failure.  Attached diagram for your reference.

 

Point 1 - Earlier there is only one switch (L2) and single port of Router. Now, we use ASR Cluster and Stack switch for high availability and redundancy.

PLAN - we are planning to create ETHERCHANNEL on both end. (ASR and StackSWITCH)

 

Point 2 - With the help of CHECKPOINT support team, We are planning to create Bond of 2 Ports and connect each port to both the Stackable switches.

PLAN - We are configured the ports as Trunk on switches.

 

Point 3 - ACI Side, We are creating VPC domain with 2 Leaf switches and connect cables as per diagram.

 

 

Whether this scenario works or not and please share any suggestions.

Re: design network topology and upgradation from 1G to 10G

i would suggest to go wth Cat 9300 (instead of 3850) - Cat 9500 (if you have budget )

 

Any reason why ToR Catalyst switch, why not nexus 9K or FEX ? ( for server connectivty)

3850 was purchased earlier. So, we are planning for it. We have 93180 (leaf) and some cat switches as ToR.

As per attached diagram , my scenario works or not.

High level works, (but use the right switch right environment, that is what i was trying to impose you)

 

if you looking the only opinion on the drawing and setup works, yes. 

 

Note: some switches not meant to be DC Switches.

You are right, we, the network team,have  proposed for 9300 series switch to the client. However client is not interested. Thus we have no option rather thn using 3850.

Re: design network topology and upgradation from 1G to 10G

if using ACI and 10GB 92340s are good switches , we have a few of them in ACI mode and they run NX mode too , with 10/40/100 GB , cheaper than cat 38s too and longer life , your customer wont get support as ling with older models
