Xsigo - Try it out, I dare you!

UPDATED 19/11/09 minor corrections/clarifications in purple: OK, if you don’t already know Xsigo Systems, and what they do, then you are seriously missing out!   The way that I see it, Xsigo (pronounced “see-go”) are of particular interest for two reasons - Firstly, they are playing in the steaming hotbed that is the I/O consolidation and virtualisation space.  This area of Data Center computing is probably experiencing its biggest period of change and upheaval since the birth of Local Area Networking.  Also, the I/O subsystems of modern servers and…
