FWSM4.0(4): Virtual Switching System (VSS) Integration
Source: Cisco Systems
One of the main objectives of FWSM 4.0 is to provide close integration and collaboration between FWSM and other Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch services. This paper provides technical details for integration of FWSM4.0 with the Virtual Switching System (VSS). The Virtual Switching System (VSS) is a new and innovative feature on Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches that effectively allows clustering of two physical chassis together into a single logical entity. Such a technology will allow for new enhancements in all areas of enterprise campus and data center deployment, including high availability, scalability/performance, management, and maintenance.
