      Could you get away with 4Gbit? <br>

      A simple 4x1GB PCI-E card is a lot cheaper than what you're
      looking for, it's also quite easy to setup LACP on CentOS.<br>

            <div>But yes, for anything that needs serious uptime I
              wouldn't recommend it unless you have spare hardware (e.g.
              power supplies, motherboards, etc) on hand. We're using
              the PE2950 for testing TSM to tape backups and will
              replace it with a 5yr 4/hr warrantied R720 once we know
              that TSM will work :) .. &nbsp;</div>
