We had such a setup for quite some time (with
Linux frontends and Solaris backend, though).
Worked ok at first, but then scaled really bad
with growing load.
We got a major performance boost with the same
hardware when we switched to rsync'ing the data
from a central system to local disks on the web
frontends instead of using nfs.
(On the other hand, I was told about similar
setups that worked quite well, but I assume
NetApp filers as backend and Sun Enterprise
systems as frontend are just another league.)
