Stacking Aruba Switches

I have spend ages trawling the net but cannot seem to find a definitave answer to this.

I need to be able to stack both 8 port poe and 24port poe switches (a stack of 8port switches ans a separate stack of 24port switches)

Can anyone what Aruba models I need to be looking at?

TIA

Steve

Re: Stacking Aruba Switches

If you want a real backplane stack, you would need to go with at least 2930M series, the smallest has 24G ports.

If you are ok with virtual stacking you could also go with 2930F, the smallest has 8G PoE+.

Thx BjKo

I have done some reading and dont see any great advantage to virtual stacking, I think I would rather each switch be its own individual identity.

The biggest value is the multi chassis LACP for the uplink or servers.

After that comes simpler configuration, because you have only one IP per stack, but thats not as important.
