I'm seeking some architecture advise from a networking standpoint.
moving into a hosted datacenter with several managed services.
The flow as I understand it:
Blended carrier network
Managed VPN (comes into play somewhere and sends clients to my router?)
Managed Firewall where i would setup which public ips would have which ports/services forwarded
Managed Load Balancer for 1 Public IP to 4 VIPs (I have a 2 server cluster from a web standpoint that will leverage this service)
My Rack in Datacenter via 2 ethernet connections in a active/passive mode for failover
What do I need in my rack? Would I put in some type of Cisco Router which has the ability to take in 2 ethernet connections in a active/passive mode then have one connection into my switch to handle my internal IP network?
If I am using this router would I setup NAT to each internal IP at this point to go to each of my Load Balanced servers?
NATs for email and such for any other public facing servers?
I'm really looking for guidance on what type of device I need at the top of my rack to interface with my switches for the internal network. I'm not used to this managed service design. Let me know what other information you need about my config to help recommended router/design options.
To start of, here are 2 network diagrams that are very basic and not complete; this is based on what you have stated so far, I highly recommend that you design your edge network with firewalls. This is
