Within my organization, we have decided to standardize on S1500 switches. As we decide to deploy the switches throughout the environment, the issue of stacking switches came up. Just how many S1500 switches can I safely stack/daisy-chain?
It's not so much a quesiton of safety, its a question of performance. We allow up to 8 members in an ArubaStack however the stack links are only 1G so if you have a lot of inter-stack traffic, this can become a bottleneck. The same is true is you only have a single uplink off of one member, it would mean that all user traffic from the other members would have to cross the 1G stack links to get to the uplink.
A stack can contain up to 8 S1500 switches.
Thanks. Taking your responses into consideration, I will minimize the stacking as much as I can. It will depend on the switch's distance from the main distribution facility.
At Aruba, we believe that the most dynamic customer experiences happen at the Edge. Our mission is to deliver innovative solutions that harness data at the Edge to drive powerful business outcomes.
