I want to connect a mid-platform (2 Web Servers , 2 Database-Servers, 1 SAN) to my enterprise network where exists three Cisco Switches.
For the moment i have two main topologies to choose to implement.
The first one has an inter-link between the Switches in order to provide a redundancy path.
At the second topology there is not redundancy at Switch level, but there is an additional link (bandwidth) towards upper aggregation Switch.
Which of these two topologies seems to be better according to yours opinion and experience?
At the second topology is it possible to arise connectivity problems due to two-way paths of each web-server to the two Switches?

hey koslyr,

If you can't go for both, redundancy and bandwith, i'd always prefer to choose the redundancy solution so no one can blame you if the worst case happens.

safety first :laugh:
