    I currently have 2 Dell PV650f clusters in operation that are end of life. I
    need to buy hardware. Question is, do I go with a SAN or NAS configuration?
    Currently, it's a SAN solution. Oh, this is for running a SQL2K cluster.

  3. SAN. I have yet to see a NAS solution (and remember, they need to be
    supported NAS solutions) that have the I/O of a SAN. I/O will be incredibly
    important to the performance of your SQL configuration.
