Open Storage helps you save time and money for Web-scale Applications.
Check this excellent benchmark for Web 2.0 run on Sun Storage 7410 (aka AmberRoad) and CMT technology based Sun Fire T5120 servers.
Its also evident from the benchmark data that you don't suffer a performance penalty for using NAS. There is a fairly common impression that performance could/would be slower than DAS, this shows that it's just not true with this environment.
