I currently run UCS with B200M2 series blades. Works great and it's easy to manage after you get the hang of it. I do use the VIC adapters and they are really cool for carving up your virtual adapters to the host. I don't run end to end FCoE but split out at the interconnects standard FC to Brocade switches.
I'd be happy to talk to you more about it if you like.

Thanks for the response! It would be great to talk to you about your experience. I hadn't planned on doing FCoE all the way either since I've got an existing fabric that while older (4Gbps) still works well and more importantly, I've got open ports left. We've been working over the past two years with Chuck Ellis, Keith Osborne and Presidio to migrate off our old Alcatel network equipment and started hearing good things about UCS. I hadn't paid much attention to UCS, but if they've risen to 2nd place behind HP in the domestic blade server market after four years, they must be doing something right.
I'll fling you my contact information. By the way, what do you guys use to host your VMFS?
