I use a VM with OpenIndiana/ illumos and napp-it as a virtual SAN. It is configured with 3 virtual gigabit interfaces, one connected to a public LAN and two to a private iSCSI LAN.

The environment is a CentOS 6.2 server running on a VM host with a HP P2000 iSCSI disk system attached via Ethernet (dedicated iSCSI network). The P2000 has two controllers A & B and 12 drives. Co... [by rarebearnm]

With some clients comes unrealistic expectations. In this specific case a customer has three Windows servers. Two are running Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise x64. The other is Windows Server 2008 Enterprise x64. These are all physical servers.
For storage they were using Openfiler because, let's just say it, they were being cheap.
