Hi all,

 

I would appreciate if you could help me on this .

 

 

We are planning to build new Datacenter (Green Field)  and migrate the services from Current to New Datacenter.

 

I'm bit stuck in finalizing the DC architecture as we have some budget constraints . Keeping the current environment in mind we have decided to go for single tier LAN architecture . Reason we are going for HP blade for Virtual environment and storage . Please help me to understand if there is any issues if we proceed  with Single tier architecture meaning only Core layer (no aggregation and Access layer).

 

 

 

 

 

Enclosing the skeleton architecture diagram

 

 

 

Details of the Current environment:

 

 

 

Internet Routers

 

Internet Switches

 

Egde Switches and Routers for WAN link termination

 

Fortinet FW

 

Cisco ASA for remote users

 

Collapsed Core

 

Aruba Access Switches

 

HP Blade Chassis for VM environment

 

Blades for physical environment

 

EMC VNX storage and Avamar backup

 

160 Vm’s and close to 16 physical server’s in the current environment .

 

 

 

Solution Provided:

 

 

 

DC1  -  Primary datacenter ,eventually all the applications/services will be migrated to here from the Current DC

 

 

 

DC2 – Secondary DC ,act as a DR site for all the physical workloads

 

 

 

Amazon Web services – DR Site for all the virtual workloads.

 

 

 

Thanks
