ER8 to ifinity

by on ‎08-11-2017 04:13 PM

After several months (or more) of testing and prep work I finally got to move to a new rack in my datacenter. My core routers were ER8s for a long time, and were stuffed in a hole and didn't have easy access to them. With much vrrp wrangling I got the job done with virtually no down time ( I did have to swap a cable to a new switch)


I am quickly outgrowing a gigabit router, and needed more. Currently there is about 1 gig of traffic, but I have another ER8 that I need to decommission. Once that is done I should see close to 1.5 gig of traffic. And this sets me up really nicely for more growth and expansion.


These 2 routers are set up with VRRP for redundency, and works very nicely.



This is the new set up, I have easy access to it and everything in one place instead of several different racks.








These 2 ERs have been removed...not all that stuff is mine.

So what is it you do with all that, what makes so much traffic?

@buzurk I operate an ISP, that's customer traffic at my headend. That's about 1500 customers.

Congrats with the upgrade.


Would be nice to learn some more about your setup. 


What is that server with the quad NIC?
