In the past (prior to Windows Server 2012 R2), in order to perform NIC Teaming, we would have needed two adapters which were from the same vendor, and a third-party software that would make the teaming possible and present the OS with just one “virtual” network card.Now from Windows Server 2012 R2 and up, this is built-in and its hardware agnostic.
This means you can use whatever network cards you want and the teaming will work like a charm.
DIVAR IP units can be upgraded to BVMS 11.0. Starting with BVMS 11.0, the BVMS licensing scheme also applies to the DIVAR IP units. This document describes which units you can upgrade to BVMS 11.0 and which licenses you have to order for a DIVAR IP unit!
