Spanning tree is the default Layer 2 link redundancy method. Etherchannel can be thought of as another. But those are for link redundancy.

For switch redundancy, it's a little different. Spanning tree can also be thought of as a switch redundancy protocol. Stacking (i.e. Cisco Stackwise) is another method of providing switch redundancy.

Can you be more specific as to what you're trying to accomplish?
