RE: OT: VM slicing and dicing

One question I do have for any that actually read through
this entire email (haha) is about the physical network
switch. Is there a case for the switch, especially
in today's high density environment to go with 1GIG switches
as the minimum? It seems pretty obvious but I'm wondering if
it's really a necessity?
Can anyone on this list argue that 10/100 will be suffice?

If you're going to do iscsi, 10/100 will be pitiful
for performance. If it's just carrying the guest (VM)
traffic, 100 mbit is fine.
