NIC teaming with ASA

Can ASA do NIC teaming? For example, can I take both eth0 and eth1,

each NIC is 1Gbps each, and bond them into 2Gbps pipe?

The reason I am asking is because I have a customer running Checkpoint

Secureplatform NGx R65 and that the firewall can do NIC bonding. They

have 4 physical interfaces on the firewall but the interfaces have been

combined that the "outside" is of eth0 and eth1 and the "inside"

interface is of eth2 and eth3. The firewall is mainly used as backup

so high throughput is required but customer does not want to spend money

on 10G modules. They maxed out at 1.3Gbps so all they need is NIC teaming

of two 1G modules.

Can I do that with ASA? Thank you in advance.

ASA doesn't support NIC teaming.
