I'm quite new in switch stack and switch cluster topic, but for my curiosity to know about it i read it for the first time and understood some basics, I might not have understood whole concept at a strech, but i want to know more about this two concept in the sense...
1. Where exactlly we deploy such scenario in practical world and why we require it?
2. What exact benefit we get if we use Switch stack and Switch cluster in our network?
3. Any thing which can build my concept strong on this two topic.
Ok got it, so configurations are not same on every switch on cluster; rite? but though we are managing every switch via single IP, so how is it possible to manage configuration of individual switch via single management IP in cluster?
Cisco only supports clusters on the Catalyst level of switches. What switches do you have? If it's not stackable or clusterable, then you're stuck managing each switch on its own. Most 'smart' switches can take a configuration upload, so if they are all the same configuration you may be able to save some time by uploading a configuration file to each switch. Or if it's a stackable switch, then you can also manage the entire stack as 1 IP if you actually go ahead and configure the stack.

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
I will have 2 Catalyst switches and 8 Industrial IE3000, and they will be connected with fiber.
