Mission Control Switching

            A vital part of any network, the Mission Control Switch is easily monitored, flexibly configurable and fully integrated into the Mission Control Portal. In addition, the Switch service supports Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs), making it possible to organize groups of computers according to your needs. Mission Control Operations support the Switch service around the clock all year round.

            Most wired network devices are connected to a single switch with a single network cable. The network connection to the switch, and the switch itself, are single points of failure. Redundant services, which are provided by several devices, can be distributed among several switches. If one switch fails, the devices that are connected to other switches are still operational. Individual devices will be offline, but the service itself will still be available.

            An example of a high availability setup where Switch 1 fails. The interruption is not noticeable for services A and B, because they are redundant and are still provided by the secondary nodes, which are connected to Switch 2. Service C is available again after a manual failover to Switch 2.
