using isilon hardware plattforms with freebsd

Hi NG,
I need to attach a storage device to freebsd servers. Rather than using
a classical san solution with maybe netapps i heard of isilion with
their nas solution.

most important for me is simplicity in use, iops/throughput and
scalabilty and flexibility when it comes to increasing the storage by
adding nodes for instance.

has anyone here made personal experience with isilion products? how
about their customer support and service level agreements?

It's a general question, I know. If you'd like me to add more info,
please let me know.

best regards.
