Upgrading Dell Poweredge T610 - Need 4 NICs

My small business is planning on upgrading our Dell T610. We currently have 4 NICs and we want the upgrade to have at least 4. The Dell PowerEdge T440 and T640 listed on dell.com only have 2 NICs from my research.

What are my options?

there is an option for a broadcom 5719 quad port card
Being a server, there are dozens of optional components, and literally millions of different possible shipping configurations.

You can order these servers with a dozen Gigabit LAN connections if you want.

If you are connect to a switch with a 10Gb SPF+ port, you could opt to just implement VLANs, and run everything over one NIC. It is unlikely that a 10Gb link would be a bottleneck for one of these servers.

Why do you need 4?
