Ok, recently I have compared prices a NexSan SASBeast with 42 15K SAS drives
with a HP MDS600 with 15K SAS drives.

The first is 8gbit Fibre Channel, the last is 3Gbit DAS SAS. The
fibre channel version is about 20% more expensive pr TB.

So of course it is a "fraction of the cost of a SAN", but it is a
fairly small one.
