[Richard Herd] "To my eyes, there seems to be an obvious market in that prosumer area for Drobo-like SAN (photographers, graphic designers, musicians, video...there are many people here)."

I think this is already happening if you need it.

SANs aren't just hardware. The hardware part is fairly easy, it's the software that is much more difficult. You have to make sure that people can't have read/write access to the same files. If they do have read/write access to the same file, then you have to make sure that one person can't destroy the other person's work.

But if you are looking for a small SAN setup, there are many vendors who are offering it these days for affordable prices, more affordable than ever, really. You will also notice that many SAN vendors are coming out with their own hardware packages as well.

Apple's file system (HFS+) is not best suited for a SAN architecture, which is why XSAN has it's own file system, and most SANs run off of some sort of NTFS subsystem.
