Thanks for answer.
What im looking for is a software solution to check out the possibilities 
(build one myself) with a SAN before buying a big enterprise one.
I'll put Equallogic in the "good" box for later aquintance:)

Well, in that case I'd recommend (Dell) Equallogic iSCSI Arrays. 
They've been around pretty much since iSCSI spec was released, and they're
fast, scalable, stable and easy to setup and use.

I have only good experiences of Equallogic arrays, been using them for many
