OK, but the virtues/pitfalls of the practice aside, the OP was 
commenting on the fact that there was actually what appeared to be a 
full SBC solution sharing the case / rack space with the server with 
nothing said about virtualization.  They actually bypassed that entire 
issue by providing physically (at least electrically) separate hardware.

And I've seen no response from anyone who can tell us anything about 
where that slick little NIC interface board mounted to the slot might 
have come from.  I don't even have a clue as to how to describe it to 
start Googling for one. :)  Anyone?
