NIC teaming, also known as Load Balancing/Failover (LBFO), allows multiple network interfaces to be placed into a team for the purposes of:

  • bandwidth aggregation, and/or
  • traffic failover to prevent connectivity loss in the event of a network component failure.

This feature has long been available from NIC vendors but until now NIC teaming has not been included with Windows Server.

The following sections address:

  • NIC teaming architecture
  • Bandwidth aggregation (also known as load balancing) mechanisms
  • Failover algorithms
  • NIC feature support – stateless task offloads and more complex NIC functionality
  • A detailed walkthrough how to use the NIC Teaming management tools

NIC teaming is available in Windows Server 8 in all SKUs, both ServerCore and full Server versions.  NIC teaming is not available in Windows 8 Client SKUs.
