Application Servers

This is a question for someone with a lot of experience bringing application servers online or for a network engineer who worked intimately to support someone who did.

If I were going to roll out a new suite of applications (JD Edwards EnterpriseOne , for example) , what considerations would I have to make with regard to network architecture and connectivity?

For example, creating a dual-homed server architecture for NIC/switch-port redundancy. Or creating a management vlan, separate from the data vlan, and using a separate NIC for that. Or perhaps placing an application server that has to constantly sieze information from an SQL database server on the same vlan/subnet to avoid layer 3 switching (routing) between hosts on different vlans. Or maybe placing the production servers and dev servers in separate vlans, etc.

The reason I am asking is that I am going to have to help an applications support group make network architecture decisions when they roll out the new suite of applications and associated servers.

Firewall - public, DMZ, private interfaces
L2/L3 Switch for DMZ and private interfaces

Dual Servers running RAID 5 with HA software for first application (Servers 1 and 2)
Add a second NIC to each server for protected Vlan management (no HA)

Use SCP to transfer data encrypted between DMZ and PRIVATE servers.
Run iptables/ipfw or whatever your servers support for added firewall protection

Does this help?
