Cisco FlexStack stacking for Cisco Catalyst 2960-S Series Switches provides a true stacking solution with all switches in a FlexStack stack acting as a single switching unit. FlexStack provides a unified data plane, and single configuration for a group of stacked Cisco Catalyst 2960-S switches. FlexStack lowers the total cost of ownership with built-in 1:N redundancy, high availability, and preprovisioning, not available in standalone switches. High-availability features such as EtherChannel and FlexLinks will work across stack members, increasing uptime and network connectivity. As part of the Borderless Network architecture, FlexStack allows scalable provisioning and management to deploy any number of switches quickly and easily.
