I've got an ESXi/FreeNAS AIO server running very smoothly at home thanks to some good threads here as well as the oft referenced article on b3n.org. Very happy with it overall, but I just can't shake the feeling that I should try out the new Xenserver before ending my testing phase and move to "production".

So, has anyone tried Xenserver 7? I know that earlier versions had very poor performance when using storage exported by a VM as would be the case for an AIO, but I'm lead to believe they made some significant I/O improvements in 7.

This experiment is at an end. I got it to work without too much trouble but in the end I decided I didn't want to be on the island alone when the fecal matter contacts the rotating blades.

I didn't even do any performance testing before I pulled the plug and went back to ESXi.
