I've got a server running Gigabit ethernet that's connected to 20 nodes (each running 1 Gigabit ethernet). I'm thinking of upgrading the server's gigabit NIC with a 10GigE (yes, my switch supports it).
My question is this: can the server's 10GigE "pipe" be virtually split into ten 1 gigabit connections? In other words, can i support ten simultateous one gigabit connections to the server?
