Hi There

Both of these technologies have their place and it will depend of your topology/requirements which one is better for you.

If you want rudundancy configured in a Master/Slave configuration, where 1 router/switch is active and the second takes over when the master fails, then use HSPR.

However if you want to have both active at the same time, where they share the load. But one can handle the full load in the event of the other failing, then use GLBP.


Best Regards,
