to increase performances you can skip iscsi and you can try a SAS SAN
(with some LSI SAS switch if you need more than 4 servers linked to a
single SAN)

actually you can have a large amount of power inside a server chassis so
...the problem is only I/O and sometimes one storage cannot handle more
than 2/3 servers

infiniband is not so expensive ...if you move ~ all to infiniband is
very cost effective but you have to invest a large amount of time.
