I believe it would be, I really am just trying to avoid using iSCSI
due to overhead.  I also am struggling to understand XCP a bit I
guess.  Is it really just Xen with VSwitch, Vastsky and a few other
magic bits thrown in, or is it entirely something new that tools you
would normally use with Xen won't work with?  Does it use Vastsky and
VSwitch by default when you set up some systems, or do you have to
configure something special to make use of the switching and storage?
