  Interesting. I'd love to hear of any more recent tests, as I was under the 
that, all things being equal (as in, no special hardware accelerators), AoE was 
a little
lighter weight.

  My plan would be for using a PC-based SAN box with dual Ethernet ports going 
to dual
small dedicated switches, and then to dual NICs on the Xen box. I don't want to 
have to
add any new hardware to the Xen box(es), so AoE's software implementation 
looked appealing.
