Creating a bonded port improves performance and fault tolerance.

Network bonding or teaming allows you to combine ports together to improve performance and fault tolerance. Note that most bonding policies are designed to spread the load across network ports when there are many network connections to the appliance. In this way they boost performance in aggregate for many servers accessing the system. That said, only the Round Robin bonding policy will actually boost performance for a single network connection. It is also important to note that for iSCSI you will get roughly 30% better performance by setting up each port on a separate network rather than using bonding/teaming. Please see the section on IO tuning for more detail.
