why not?? cause you wanna make it outta fiber? sure, that would be cool, but
you can very easily build a SAN out of stuff you have now. sure, NFS is pretty
evil, and maybe not the most stable thing around, but at work they have a SAN
that is nothing more than a private 100M ethernet segment on a nice fast switch
and a NetApp. sure, you don't have the NetApp, but any NFS server will do.
just the NetApps a little better cause they F******* RULE. anyway, it's not
so unreasonable to use ethernet for a SAN. just keep that in mind before you
are so quick to give up on the idea.
although personally i'd use FDDI, but that's just me.
