This review is from: Intel E10G42BTDA Server Adapter X520-DA2 10Gbps PCI Express 2.0 x8 2 x SFP+
Pros: Extremely pleased with these, but I did my homework before purchasing. They compose a VMware vSphere 5 storage network.
2x Dell 8024F switches
5x Dell R710s with one of these cards in each server (ESXi 5 hosts)
1x Dell c2100 Server running NFS off of Nexenta CE 3.1.3 with 2 of these cards in it (one PCI based as sold here and another that is a mezzanine card) for an aggregate 40Gbps throughput to/from the SAN.
tons of Cisco SFP-H10GB-CU3M/SFP-H10GB-CU1M cables used for connectivity.
These were chosen for compatibility/reliability as we planned to build our own SAN solution after pricing every storage vendor we could fathom. We ended up spending a fraction of the quotes we were offered and got more for our $.
Shipping as always was remarkably fast w/ NewEgg.
Cons: Cost? They can be had elsewhere for substantially less.
Other Thoughts: Do your homework and buy the right cables, etc for these and you won't regret it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: So far so good. No worries. Using OCZ Denevas for the ZIL on the SAN. Had next day shipping to meet a deadline and NewEgg delivered as always.
Cons: None. Actually planning on building a SAN entirely of these bad boys running VMware linked clones and virtualized storage solutions for those linked clones in a cloud environment.
Other Thoughts: This is one of the few drives on the HCL for the QNAP TS-1079 Pro, but it's also functioning very well with extreme I/O workload Nexenta SANs.READ FULL REVIEW

Cons: nada.READ FULL REVIEW
