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?

If you have the space/ports and it costs the same, two SSDs will definitely give you better iops and throughput than a single SSD twice the size.
