To support this solution, the data center environment must have:
- Ethernet switching infrastructure that is capable of layer 3 routing and supports trunking, layer 2 VLAN ID and tagging (IEEE 802.1Q), Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP IEEE 802.3ad), and the Spanning Tree PortFast feature.
- Domain Name System (DNS) and Network Time Protocol (NTP) services. A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server is recommended.
- Sufficient power and cooling to support all components. To determine accurate power and cooling needs, see the product documentation for the corresponding component.
