I have one of those installed on CentOS 4.6 with 1TB of storage.  I'm
sharing it between three servers.  I can't say how well it works for
multi-TB storage, but it works well enough for me at 1TB.

Our testing showed reasonable performance.  You can get faster shared
storage, but you'll be hard pressed to find it cheaper.

The linux drivers are readily available from the Coraid website and they
compile very easily on CentOS.
