As the title says, I manage a small network which uses a Cisco 3560X as the core switch. We have recently got a 2nd identical switch and I have started thinking about how to add some redundancy to the network.
Since the 3560X cannot be stacked, I was wondering which redundancy method would be best, in case of a switch failure. Do you think it is better to have a backup switch ready to be cabled and configured in such a failure or configure something more advanced, like HSRP?
Power and uplink redundancy have been taken care of already.
Thank you in advance for your input!
