looking for switch that supports link aggregation

Hi, I'm looking for a switch that supports link aggregation, or NIC teaming, I believe.  

Any help is appreciated.

Great thanks Pgm, so LACP is what I look for?  is there a way to tell how many ports are avalable for that? or are they all?

Every port is available for LACP.
You do need to make sure the network cards support it,but most server cards will  support link aggregation.

Get your Disaster Recovery as a Service basics

Disaster Recovery as a Service is one go-to solution that revolutionizes DR planning. Implementing DRaaS could be an efficient process, easily accessible to non-DR experts. Learn about monitoring, testing, executing failovers and failbacks to ensure a "healthy" DR environment.

If you have Windows 2012, you have built-in teaming option, otherwise you have to use vendor's software (BACS for Broadcom, HP NIC Teaming Utility...).

Regarding switches - every normal switch supports LACP. On the server side you choose what would you like - most of the cases are LACP with failover (if one adapter goes down, the other takes all the traffic)

Ok, thanks guys, one more before I close this, and thanks again, do I need to do anything on the switch configuration wise in it or is an automatic function?

If you need simply LACP with failover only, then you don't need to do anything.
