Dell R710 running ESX4 USB3

I have discovered that USB2 is too slow for me in my Dell R710.  I need to benefit from USB3 speed but I am not sure if this is possible with Vsphere / ESX 4.

I realise that I will need to buy a new card but don't know whether this will work in the ESX environment, does ESX4 support a USB3 Card ?

Many Thanks

No, it only supports USB 1.1 and 2.0 at present:

What sort of device do you want to attach to the machine?  
If it's for an external disk then you'd be better off looking for a NAS device with ethernet and NFS or iSCSI capabilities.

Take a look at the Thecus boxes - very configurable.
