Nexus VPC Datacenter Architecture

I came across two different architecture for Nexus VPC data center deployment

1. Single Homed
2. Dual Homed

Single Homed


Redundant teaming configurations from the servers to the fabric extenders.

Dual Homed

Here we add few disadvantages as well.


Port configuration should match on both switches (5K FEX)
Complex Design

Out of both designs, i would recommend Single homed Design.
