The Application Control Engine (ACE) 4710 has been removed from our normal CCIE Data Center rack rental topology, and is now available as a standalone rack rental.  From now until Sunday March 23rd 2014 you can book ACE rack rentals for free.  To book ACE rentals, login to your http://members.ine.com account, click the Rack Rentals option on the left, and you should see the ACE scheduler as seen below:

Click the Schedule/Cancel Session button, and the calendar window will appear.  Select your start and end date, and if it is within the beta period it will show a zero token cost for the session.  Note that during the beta period you can only reserve blocks of 4 hours at the most.

ACE rack rentals include the following:

  • ACE 4710 Appliance
  • Catalyst 3750G Switch
  • 3 x Apache Server Virtual Machines
  • 1 x Windows Client Virtual Machine

The topology for ACE rack rentals looks as follows:

Although the ACE 4710 is End-of-Life, there is still a large install base of these boxes in the field. Even if you’re not preparing for the CCIE Data Center Lab Exam it can’t hurt to see how the ACE works, as other load balancers & application switches such as Citrix NetScaler or F5 Local Traffic Manager use the same type of logic for traffic switching.
