Brian,

See blog discussion.  NFS is just like iSCSI, only worse.
http://it.toolbox.com/blogs/database-soup/the-problem-with-iscsi-30602

If you *do* to this because management is more important than 
performance, then budget for $2k or so worth of tuning & troubleshooting 
services, or make sure that that's included by NetApp.  You'll also need 
NetApp's proprietary NFS tech to make it work at all.

Also note that lag time isn't such a problem for data warehousing as it 
is for OLTP.  And the bandwidth issues are solvable by using 10gE, but 
that significantly increases the cost of your solution.
