Interesting,  They are in and running and I'm hitting on them pretty good.
One thing I did change: I've seen recommendations (one in particular from
nexenta) that recommends an 8KB recordsize for virtualization workloads
(which is 100% of my workload).  I Svmotion'ed all the VMs off the datastore
and back (to get new smaller recordsize.)  I wonder if that has an effect?

give you better iops and throughput than a single SSD twice the size.
