Currently using the older model of this one [1] @ 4GB/s on the fiber.
Thats with BiDirectional, both links at 4 GB/s.  Were looking for
something to scale to 24 if not 30.  It is in constant time wait also of
about .30.  It has what I call an ROI (return on investment) of 5 mins
and longer, witch needs to be cut down greatly, 30 secs to a min.  The
application supports 128 CPUs of which it's a PACS Appication that runs
in almost real time.

The bad thing just throwing money at storage is not going to work, we
have to have a 30 - 90 day POC, period in house.
