[Linux-cluster] Homebrew NAS Cluster

I'm in the process of setting up a virtualisation farm which will have
50-60 virtual machines, running a wide range of web, application and
database applications, all on top of vmware vi3.
My budget won't stretch to a commercial NAS solution, so it's either a
SAN, which could get complicated and hard to manage with so many
nodes, or a home-brew NAS solution.
Has anyone done this, on the list? I'm wondering what the catch is?
I'm thinking all I need to do is run NFS on top of a clustered
filesystem, and export to ESX.
I could use some pointers, gotchas, ideas and experiences.
