Since you explain many subjects in network field, I want to ask you my question related to “site selection in distributed data centers”. The scenario is :
A customer has three sites and offers financial applications with IP services.
The customer uses ACE for load balancing between servers in each site and I’m looking for the best solution for site selection between data centers?
Since the customer uses “Financial applications with IP services”, should I use Cisco GSS and enabling Route Health Injection (RHI) on them??
I’m looking forward to hearing from you ASAP.
Warm regards

GCC and ACE are beyond the scope of my knowledge, beyond the concepts.

That being said there is no uniform solution that would be THE best solution.

I would suggest you to open thread on
