We currently are running a single 3600 controller with approx 60 APs at our main campus. One of our primary concerns is redundancy, since if that controller dies we lose connectivity to all of our APs.
We are about to add an additional small campus that will begin with 10 AP. That campus will be connected via fiber point-to-point (so on a different vlan, but connected directly to the main campus core switching) We have been hearing the buzz about instant, but need to provide redundancy to all of our campuses.
We had originally planned to purchase an additional 3600 ($$$) to provide that redundancy. Here is the question...
Can I deploy instant at the new campus AND provide redundancy via instant? Or do I really need to deploy a physical controller solution to provide redundancy to my existing controller based APs?

It appears that the 7030 tops out at 64 APs... are you saying to deploy that at the secondary campus to run the additional APs or split the load between the existing 3600 and the 7030 for redundancy?
Thanks so much!

I've tried, but frankly so much of this is new, very few resellers can give good answers for best practices on this stuff.
We have been a customer for a long time, but are still a small account with only 60aps. So while we have a ton invested in controller-based APs, making a switch to instant or some other option for redundancy seems like really muddy waters that nobody knows or has implemented. It's either one or the other.
