Coming back to the hardware universe I see that there aren't yet 4 ports adapter in the 10 GbE or the UTA2 families.
The only 4 ports available cards are FCP/1 GbE/SAS.
This can be a very big limit answering to public call for tender where maybe an 8020 is a good choice but they ask for a number of ports that is more than the configurable ones.
A lot of storage vendors have on their portfolio expansion cards with 4 ports for 10 GbE or CNA.
Is there a plan for NetApp to have these too?
heard 40gbps nic and 2-port 32gb fc target adapter will be out soon. but no any news about quad port 10gbe/uta
