This article http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc558565(BTS.10).aspx explains how to optimize network performance for BizTalk servers.
I tested this BizTalk network optimization on a SQL Server cluster.
The result was that the SQL server was significantly faster than 3 other reference servers!
After removing the optimization, the SQL server (that was faster before) performed exactly the same as the other 3 reference servers.
The performance gain was most visible in response times (30% faster on our test environment, for small queries). If you have to setup a low latency environment, this network optimization can help lowering latencies.
