Different. The clustering is used with the older 29xx models, and is not very effective in my opinion.

True stacking models are the 3750s.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

Stacking and clustering are different.

A switch cluster is a set of up to 16 connected, cluster-capable Catalyst switches that are managed as a single entity. The switches in the cluster use the switch clustering technology so that you can configure and troubleshoot a group of different Catalyst desktop switch platforms through a single IP address.

Using switch clusters simplifies the management of multiple switches, regardless of their physical location and platform families.

Look at this...
