I have moved all our company data to a DELL POWERVAULT NX3000 NAS we currently have 6-7 terabytes of data, things currently are not bogged down to bad, but my question is this.  There are 4 Network Jacks on the server, will I gain any performance during heavy loads by utilizing more than one of them to the Switches, I have 2x 48 port switches, should I run a cable to each switch?  Do I need to bridge the connections at that point, does each connection need its own IP address?  How do you best configure things to move data the fastest. Currently the server has one IP and 1 Cat5 cable plugged it, but I can tell that at times were maxing it.

I just want to move data as fast as possible without having to dole out for Gigabit gear.  Any help would be most appreciated.
