Oh, one other data point. Last I checked, NetApp used VMWare as a
training/development platform with OnTap GX, which is FreeBSD-derived. I
believe that may include shipping training VMs to customers, but you'd want to
check their web site and confirm that before passing that on. I don't know if
NetApp has shipped with VMWare in products; if that is the case, you might not
want to bring up NetApp's work on bHyve :-).
