I am not sure what AoE is? Could you explain?

And 4 NIC's bonded gives 4 times the bandwidth as well as fault
tolerance. Which is really good for some of our servers. It makes
migrating servers a little easier because it adds a little abstraction
to the network layer. Now I have each interface as a separate bridge
to keep some of our high bandwidth severs happy. When having to
migrate them it is really hard to keep track of which server is using
what bridge so that two high bandwidth servers don't have to share a
link causing slow downs for the users. I was hoping to try and use a
bond interface to eliminate that issue.
