[Openstack] openstack & network HA - 10GbE bonding?

We've had great luck with Intel dual-port 10gbe NICs and Arista 7050S
switches. We have the NICs configured as an 802.3ad bond with each port
going to a different switch.

I haven't noticed any performance issues. I remember we did some benchmarks
last summer and were a little disappointed about the transfer rate of
various protocols, but then saw that we were able have multiple sessions
running at the same peak rate, so we figured it was a software limitation
of some sort.
