I use Coraid at work http://www.coraid.com  its fairly cheap  List price on a 
shelf is USD$5000 each shelf holds 15 sata drives.   you could use there nas 
gateway.  however fedora has all the tools in to distro to connect and manage 
the shelves  they use the aoe module in the kernel.  we could cluster koji 
and use GFS on the backend.
