Can you use LVM with NFS? Is NFS not slower than iSCSI?

Well, it would be a lot easier (and just as cheap) to use NFS.
The only downside to NFS might be that it is not accessible from Windows.

But it is much simpler to setup. eaisier to maintain, faster to
troubleshoot. test friendlier and a lot more used.

So basically, what benefits does iSCSI offer you, that NFS doesn't?
