Split-Site Configuration

Last Modified: 08/29/2012 at 8:13 | Release:

Placing physical machines in separate sites protects against loss in local disasters.
Follow these Private and Sync Link requirements:

  • NICs, fiber converters, and switches in the private network must be non-routed, non-blocking, dedicated, and provide 100MB (Private only) and 1000MB transfer rates.
  • Roundtrip latency must not exceed 10 ms. Calculate latency at 1 ms for each 100 miles of fiber, and less than 1 ms for each non-routed, non-blocking switch.
  • No general business or management traffic.
