ceph osd's with talk to different hosts, so the total traffic will 
spread out over the 1gbps links.
using  layer3+4 will a spread this out even better. since the different 
osd's will use different links as well.
ceph + lacp is a good fit.

BUT! ceph's latency will be limited to the 1gbps link, so while you can 
get better thruput from 4 channels, you will not get the lower latency. 
and on a vm the latency impacts the "feel" of the vm performance more 
then the thruput.   This is also why 25gbps is better then 40gbps (in 
effect 4x10gbps) for storage iops/latency
