Setting up Static Routing Between Two Datacentre Sites Linked by a Cross Connect Cable

Hi All,

I have 2 datacentre sites which are now linked together by a Cross Connect Cable, provided by a 3rd party specialist. Each site has it's own independant internet feed as well.

My aim is to be able to link both sites together so that they can talk to each other without having to go out through the internet, hence the purpose of getting the cross connection installed. So far, I have setup the plans for the network but am not 100% sure if it will work. As I am working on a production environment it would be helpful is someone can confirm whether or not my plan will work, and also recommend any changes if necessary.

I have attached a network diagram of what I have come up with so far and would like your input. The internal routers are HP 2610's and the firewalls are Juniper SSG's. The install is in a datacentre which is why most the devices have public IP addresses. I was hoping to be able to get this working through Static Routes, although I know this can get a little complex as the network grows.

Looking forward to getting your input.

Regards, Harry.

What you have in your diagram for static routing is correct.  One question though, why do you need to get to the firewall public subnets across each data center?  If you have a reason for it, then no worries - everything looks correct.

Thanks API_NOC,

Any recommendations on changing the configuration in any way. I want to ensure I have the fastest possible setup between the two sites, currently running at about 20Mbps.

If all is well and hoping that the 16 block IP's are issued relatively quickly, I plan to launch this next weekend.

Regards.

i.e. Any need for VLANs here?
