What sort of workload?

For lowest latency of course I'd suggest a private 10GbE network
with jumbo frames, keep the systems on the same switches, and use
a purpose built high performance NAS system with 15k RPM SAS/Fiber
disks and very large(4GB+) mirrored write cache rather then trying
to roll your own.
