Hi folks, so you heard me mention the new switches from Cisco. One of the new features I mentioned is called StackPower. What is this you might ask?

Well essentially, you take a bunch of switches, stack them using the stackpower cables, and then all that power is pooled for use amongst all the switches. So your power is essentially virtualized! All that power can be used by any switch!

This means that power supplies can out and out fail in one of the switches and the other power supplies in other switches will continue to provide power! Now that’s cool!

You can read more about it here.
