NIC teaming

NIC teaming uses multiple NICs on the same server to connect to the network. The ports are used either as an aggregate port to connect to the network or as an active/standby port. The way the NIC teaming would work is configurable on the actual server. NIC teaming provides services redundancy in case of a NIC card failure, or a port/switch failure on the uplink switch where the server is connected.
