Like a single physical processor.  Interesting.  I have a SuperMicro
X8DTH-6f motherboard at home.  I wanted to do a couple Xeons in there and do
VMware on a small SSD.  The SSD would house a single datastore for Nexenta.
 That would load up, then Nexenta would have passthrough control of a SAS
card that'd have multiple 1TB SAS drives on it.  But, since I'm limited to
32GB of RAM (and not to mention the price of HDDs skyrocketing due to the
flood in Thailand), that's looking more and more like a pipe dream.
