NAS vs SAN for data directory

P: n/a
Hello All,

I am trying to decide which storage I should use for the "Data Directory".
My application has lots of 'SELECT's (80%) and fewer
UPDATEs/INSERTs(20 %).

I have the following choices of Data storage

1) Xiotech SAN (66 Mhz FCAL)
2) NAS
3) Internal SCSI 3 RAID 5

Will I achieve any better performance using one storage vs the other
storage?

In the past (for about 2 years), I have I used SAN with 33Mhz FCAL, and
the performance has been quite exceptional. And I have encountered no
problems.

Any suggestions?
Thanks
