Multi-Enclosure Stacking (MES) on the c3000 chassis

Charles had a quesiton regarding MES on the c3000:




Dear Blade buddies,


Here’s a question on Multi-Enclosure Stacking (MES).


My customer wants to minimize costs and has rather basic availability

requirements, they also only have 110Volts currently available.


We are discussing stacking 2x c3000 with only one VC Flex-10 module

Installed per chassis.


Can 2 non-redundant chassis be stacked ?  Are c3000 different from c7000

In this case (c3000 sometimes tighter restrictions).


Assistance today would be greatly appreciated, as I’m trying to drop

This RFP response before the hollidays  ;-)       




Ed replied:




C3000s can’t be stacked… not supported. Checkout the MES white paper.






Any other comments or suggestions for Charles?
