HA Connectivity between 2 Data center with Fiber connection

Dear All,

 

 

Can anyone please help regarding an HA configuration between 2 different data centers far in distance from each other, and connected to each other using a Fiber link. is that configuration possible? how to do this over only one link between the 2 locations?

 

 

Thanks,

@SamerKiwan,

You wouldn't want to do this if you only have a single strand of fiber. You would at bare minimum want 1 strand for HA1, and 1 strand for HA2 for direct connections. Relistically you would also want 2 more to do the backup links since you are using Fiber connections over any sizeable distance so you could do maintenance when requested. 

You could do this with a single strand if you put a switch on both ends and enough bandwidth to actually handle the Control Link and Data Link connections without much latency.

Thank you Bpry, i appreciate your help. Actually i will try to either get switches on both sides or establish another separate link.
