Service Module Design with ACE and FWSM

September 11, 2008

This document describes the deployment of virtual services into the server farm using a modular approach. The goal is to easily produce the right mix of routing, switching, security, and application delivery services as required. Here an approach is shown for delivering these services using virtual contexts on the Firewall Services Module (FWSM) and Application Control Engine (ACE) as well as Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) instances on the Catalyst 6500. It describes a way to deploy these services together in a high availability environment.
