11U Colo? Best Switch?
We currently have a few servers colod for VPS's, backup servers, ect and are adding new server and it works out more cheaper to rent a rack now so we are upgrading to 11U which means we need a switch.
I've never used Cisco or juniper cli before so im not used to CLI for now but will be learning and sticking with whichever manufac we go with.
Ive had a look at a few switches, The features we will need is sFlow or netflow to monitor for any attacks ect and to see bandwidth. And capability for switch redundancy further down the line.
At the moment we will only need a 24 port switch however I'm maybe thinking it will be better to purchase 48port switch so we wont need to purchase a new one later on when we get more rackspace.
Cisco Catalyst 2960S-24TS-S
Cisco Catalyst 2960S-48TS-S
Does anyone else have any reccomendations? Im looking for cheapest, reliable switch with most features.
Cisco 2960s - both 24 and 48, We have a Lot of those running. Solid as a rock
I'm sure either would be fine if you're only doing layer 2 switching.
Would I need a layer 3 switch to do ACL's or can layer 2 do basic ACLs? (For example locking down IPMI ports to certain IP's ect)? (Locking down switch management)(
