IRF2 (Intelligent Resilient Framework 2)
H3C S5000V3 series switch supports IRF2 technology that connects multiple physical devices (up to 9) to a logical device, that is to say, users can manage and use these devices as a single device. IRF can bring the following benefits to the user：
Simplify the management: Any one of the ports can be connected to any of the devices to login to a unified logical device, and to manage the whole system and all the members of the system through the configuration of a single device, without the physical connection to each member of the device.
High scalability: With IRF2, plug-n-play device aggregation can be achieved by adding one or more switches into the IRF2 stack and enabling IRF2 stacking on the new device. New devices can be managed with a single IP, and upgraded at the same time to reduce network expansion cost.
High reliability: IRF2 patented 1:N standby technology allows each slave device in the IRF2 stack to serve as the backup of the master, creating control and data link redundancy, as well as uninterrupted layer-3 forwarding. This improves the reliability, avoids unplanned business downtime and serves to improve overall performance. When the master device fails, traffic remains uninterrupted.
Load balancing: IRF2 supports cross-device link aggregation, upstream and downstream can be connected to more than one physical link, which creates another layer of network redundancy and boosts the network resource utilization.
Availability: H3C Implements IRF2 through standard Gigabit Ethernet (1GE) ports or 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) ports which allocates bandwidth for business and application access and reasonably splits local traffic and upstream traffic.
