is there a twinax fiber equivalent?  the I/O module on the VNX 5300 is 2-port optical iscsi IO module.

Additional, AFAIK, the VNX must be Licensed for 10G / iSCSI

one last thing, I guess the customer can also use LC to LC 10g fiber in lieu of the twinax since both modules on each end has SPFs anyway. Thanks again.
