• Link Aggregation with LACP and NIC Teaming

    Hi All!, been awhile since I posted an article and I don’t think I have ever posted one on Network Link Aggregation!! Link Aggregation is the physical combining of network links into one logical link. There are two main advantages to this practice. First is the increase throughput that you obtain by combining links, for example combining 2x 1GB links will increase your total bandwidth to 2GB.(Keep in mind this will not change your latency…) Secondly, link aggregation grants the benefits of redundancy. Imagine the setup above. If 1 of the 1GB links fails, you would still have the other 1GB link to fall back on, woot!.
