I use an Fast EtherChannel (FEC) setup on my servers. It load balances,
failsover and back automatically. And my backups of remote servers take
about 1/3 the time. This setup requires the FEC driver and a switch
capable of FEC.
Both cards respond to a single virtual MAC address, single IP address,
and the OS sees a single virtual NIC. Pretty seemless, but not trivial
to setup. Not brain surgery, but be prepared for a little

Depends on the purpose?
Do you need max thruput? It may be possible (not sure) to channel the
2 port together.. Or failover as you mention to the same/different
switches for redundancy..
We need more info to make a good suggestion..
