Re: How to correctly implement IPv6 on a hosting company

The VLANs are for managing your broadcast domains. In the article there is only one computer in the diagram but the VLAN is actually for the wireless tower. In your case I think You can assing a VLAN to each server rack, if we are talking about 5000 physical servers will be what? 100+ racks?
