yep, we're doing FCoE in an EMC Symettric, ESX, Nexus environment.  All of our FCoE is over 10gb CNAs.  We are having 
good results, though we hit an odd bug on QLogics cards initially on pur HP DL 580s (affected twinax only -- if you 
dropped on uplink , ie testing failover, throughput dropped to crap for disk i/o., that issue only cleared after a 
power cycle of the server.  Qlogic never fixed the issue so we RMAd nearly 30k in 10gb CNA cards and swapped everythibg 
to fiber.  So beware of that.  I can get more detail on the affected cards,etc tomorrow if interested.  Our entire 
production VMware environment is off that setup.

Does anyone know of any company or organization deploying FCoE[1] in a
production environment? I'm curious how widely adopted this technology is.
