A NIC team can share a load of traffic between physical and virtual networks among some or all of its members, as well as provide passive failover in the event of a hardware failure or network outage.

To utilize NIC teaming, two or more network adapters must be uplinked to a virtual switch. The main advantages of NIC teaming are:

  • Increased network capacity for the virtual switch hosting the team.
  • Passive failover in the event one of the adapters in the team goes down.
