HP Nic teaming question

We have DL385 servers with 4 NICs, and would like to team the NICs in the following manner:

- NIC1+2 -> switch 1
- NIC3+4 -> switch 2

We'd like each pair to be an Etherchannel to provide a 2Gbps fault tolerant configuration. SLB is not suitable for our requirement - we need 2Gbps between the servers. We also need redundancy should one of the switches fail.

Is the above configuration possible?
