new data center and offices -> which choice of CISCO models ?
Posted on 2014-12-23
I have some questions regarding Cisco switches and models.
Next year we get new offices and a new data center.
It is not that big as you think now :-)
In total we have 5 new floors. For each floor it is enough to have 50 ports.
So I calculated two 48 port switches in each floor.
Now in the old data center we use HP switches as modules in a chassis.
I am thinking to do the same with Cisco, I have seen they also have modules and chassis.
What would you like to recommend, when you need two 48 port switches per floor ?
The goal should be also redundancy and scale-able for the future.
I also have seen the prices for the chassis, linecards and modules.
Please can you also explain the big difference between 48 port modules and 48 port linecards ?
I don´t know why its ten times more expensive.
