Get the Facts - Nortel Stacking Vs. Clustering
Source: Nortel Networks
Debates have come and gone regarding the use of either a stacking architecture or switch clustering for the edge of the network. Most arguers on the clustering side will usually tout the benefits of clustering until they too are able to deliver a truly stacked solution to their customers, thus emphasizing the true benefits that stacking has over clustering. The purpose of this paper is to summarize the benefits and key differences in technology as well as to articulate the Nortel stacking architecture differentiation.
