I have been run through some Arista spine and leaf guide and i just wondering where to put WAN Optimization or SLB devices in this architecture.

Any references or case study available for this deployment?

Thanks in advance.

Typically physical services appliances such as LB, Firewalls, etc are connected on a pair of service leafs.

For WAN optimization, some customers put those on the same service leafs and some put them on their dedicated DCI leafs. It depends on your network design and size.

I recommend you reach out to your local Arista team to have a technical discussion about those topics.

I you do not have any contacts, you can shoot a quick email to
