Distribution switch config, stack or seperate with hsrp
I am installing some new distribution switches on my campus, all access switches will connect to them in the same closet, my question is should I stack them and have L3 vlans running no hsrp, all access switches will have a connection to stack member 1 and 2, so if we lose one switch it will be fine.
Or do I separate the switches, run a trunk between them and have HSRP configured ?
Cisco StackWise technology provides an innovative new method for collectively utilizing the capabilities of a stack of switches.

Configuration and routing information is shared by every switch in the stack, creating a single switching unit. Switches can be added to and deleted from a working stack without affecting performance.
