Configure a bridge interface over a VLAN tagged bonded interface on CentOS / RHEL
Linux enables us to create advanced network setups which provide us with special features like NIC Bonding, VLAN tagging or Bridging allowing us to increase network connectivity efficiency and reliability of Linux based hosts.
Linux Bond is a kernel module which facilitates combining multiple network interfaces (like ens1f0, ens1f1) into aggregated links named Bonds to provide network redundancy, link failover and increased throughput.
VLAN tagging (802.1q) helps us to distinguish particular VLANs from network trunk (VLANs range) coming from the switch. It’s very helpful Linux kernel module, which enables us to connect to the multiple networks, if the server has less NICs than networks.
