What design will effect traffic flows in the Data Center Core layer?

Question:

What design will effect traffic flows in the Data Center Core layer?

Options:

The domain needed to extend a VLAN from one switch to another is determined at the core layer

With a 3 layer (Access, Aggregation, Core) design the Layer 2 domain must be configured across the Core for VLAN extension to occur

Extending Layer 2 through a core causes path blocking by STP and has the risk of uncontrollable broadcast issues related to extending Layer 2 domains, and therefore should be avoided

Server-to-server traffic typically travels between aggregation modules by way of the core, while backup and replication traffic remains within the aggregation module

Correct Answer

The Correct Answer for this Question is

Extending Layer 2 through a core causes path blocking by STP and has the risk of uncontrollable broadcast issues related to extending Layer 2 domains, and therefore should be avoided
