I need some help with regards to the best way to design my network. I've supported a similar setup before, but wasn't involved with the initial design of it.
2 x 550e Watchguards,
2 x HP Procurve 24 port switches,
3 servers (initially),
30 external IP addresses.
My aim is to create an HA network that would allow for either one of the switches or firewalls to fail without causing downtime. I have setup teaming on the servers, so that both NICs share the same IP and one NIC from each server will be to connected to each of the switches. I intend to put these 3 servers on different VLANs for security and future expansion reasons. .
I shall setup 3 VLANs, 101, 102 and 103 on the HP Procurves, with one server in each (www, sql and email). I understand that I need to setup a heartbeat between the two firewalls and that I need to have a connection from both firewalls, trusted interface to switch, and the optional interface to the other switch.
Do I need to use VRRP? This is something I remember seeing from the old setup, but I'm rather wet behind the ears with all this, sorry.
A diagram with some example IP's and wiring etc would be greatly appreciated.
