DAS vs NAS/SAN considerations

Hi, traditionally Direct Attached Storage(DAS) has been the recommended architecture for production Hadoop. DEV/TEST environments are probably ok with NAS/SAN HDFS storage. Does anyone have experience deploying production cluster on shared storage like NAS/SAN? The Cloudera Reference architecture only mentions EMC Isilon based shared storage. Thanks.
