ECS network

ECS network infrastructure consists of top of rack switches allowing for the following types of network connections:

  • Public network – connects ECS nodes to your organization's network, providing data.
  • Internal private network – manages nodes and switches within the rack and across racks.

For more information about ECS networking, see the ECS Networking and Best Practices White Paper.

CAUTION:  It is required to have connections from the customer's network to both front end switches (rabbit and hare) in order to maintain the high availability architecture of the ECS appliance. If the customer chooses not to connect to their network in the required HA manner, there is no guarantee of high data availability for the use of this product.
