I guess it depends on your definition of "reasonable" ;-)
The smallest silver-edition license you can buy is 1100 bucks onetime and
65 renewal every year.

Personally, I would really try to find the funding for a "real" SUN
Open/Integrated Storage - even if Oracle have probably hiked the prices
now.
Those S7000s can do everything (NFS, CIFS, iSCSI, FC) and very fast.
