I have a requirement where customer would like to implement data & storage network on 1 single ethenet card rather than 2 ethernet card on compute node.

Can we do that with current release ?

putting data and storage on the same NIC is not the best choice, but technically it is possible. I guess your switch configured with VLAN Tagging (aka. Frame Tagging )- google it for "IEEE 802.1Q". Install the vlan package and you can create multiple interface upon single NIC. Then you can use each interfaces to data and storage an etc..
