    The future is bright, as I came across this article which suggests instead of 1Gbit, 10Gbit and 40Gbit, 56Gbit, we'll soon also have 25Gbit and 50Gbit ethernet network connectivity Spirent Blogs - 25 Questions to Ask About 25G Ethernet :cool:

    Could a box boot without it's own drives but from a San via something like a 10gigs SFP?
    It's somehow off topic but SFP can provide 10 gigs and can be had via eBay for like 40 bucks :).

    I was aware of such device but I appreciate your time to look for it.
    I'm still wanting to avoid using (this is not something I will be doing now but in a couple of years hopefully) any drives in each box but make use of a dual port sfp to hook up to a San
