Location of Servers in Network Design
Posted on 2016-08-20
When doing Network design by Block as follows:
Each Block has few Access Switches connected to higher end distributed switches
Each High end Distributed switches connected to the Core Switches
let's say we have 5 Blocks.
If I understand User PCs will connect to Access Switches
What about the Servers ? they can connect to Access Switches , but if I understand when clients send requests, the traffic will go through Access switches to Distribution Switches to the Core Switches to reach the Servers.
Now it sounds like VLANs where the Servers are Should not be reached directly by Clients through Access Switches , but through the Itinerary (Access Switches(where Clients are connected) to DIstribution Switches to Core Switches then Back to DIstribution Switches then to Access Switches where the Servers are connected)
Hope my question is Clear
