ProCurve Switch 4208vl-96 4208vl-96 & High Availability

I have a question about the switch in subject.
If I want to archieve High Availability, should I buy two switches or can I connect each multihomed server to each module?

For example:

one single switch 4208vl-96.
server1, nic1, module 1's port 1
server1, nic2, module 2's port 1

Doing so i'll have module redundancy, is enough or I must buy a couple of switches and connect each server to each switch?

yes redundancy and high availability very important on network

you think two core switch and one server teaming with each switch connect.
and two core switch connect between hight bandwith and all edge switch connect to each core switch

because 4200 series active backplane soo cpu reside backplane 4200 5300 5400 switch full redundancy two core switch but 8200 switch no active backplane you use two management and swith fabric module and each module have self cpu and each module connect two fabric module

you example one single switch operation success on 8200 switch
