BGP Routing Question
Posted on 2014-04-04
At our corporate office we currently have a 60Mb connection to the internet through Time Warner. For redundancy we are adding an additional 50MB connection through AT&T.
We have another location that is co-located in our parent companies datacenter. They already have multiple providers and currently use BGP.
If I get a /24 block of IPs from ARIN is it possible for me to split that block up and BGP advertise a portion through Time Warner here at my corporate office and get a provider at my parent company to advertise the other portion.
What I want to get to is the ability to failover from my corporate office to the parent company and if need be from the parent company to the corporate office.
Ideally I would take the /24 I hope to get from ARIN and split it in half. Advertise half here at corp and the other half at the parent company datacenter.
Very new to BGP. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
