Yes - we have :-) :

  Reading a single large file: 55.5 MiB/s
  Writing a single large file: 63.5 MiB/s

This is the configuration:
  * G33-DS3R mainboard
  * Intel Core2Quad Q6600 , 2.4GHz
  * 2GB of RAM
  * 1GBit/s ethernet
  * 10x 750 GB in a RAID-6 on an Areca 1231 controller
  * ext3 as /vicepa
  * Debian Etch + latest updates
  * Kernel is vanilla, results are nearly the same for

The given performance values were measured between two of those servers
which were connected via a single low-cost GE-switch.
