    Netflow using (gasp!) shared storage (SAN) and/or SQL clusters, and VMware - your experiences?

      I know the recommendation Solarwinds gives for Netflow module installations to use local storage, but the vast majority of SQL db-using apps in our enterprise point at db's on SQL clusters using SAN storage.   In addition, and this may be more a question relating to Orion NPM as well as Netflow, almost all of our app servers are being virtualized using VMware.  Anyone have good experiences running NPM with Netflow (our db stays around 30 gig) using either of these scenarios?  This is assuming the Virtual Hosts meet required specs and the bandwidth of the NICs are sufficient.
