I’ve been using FreeNAS for the last 9 months as a store for several Vmware Hosts..
Has performed great, and ZFS is solid.

Nexenta CE may only be used for testing, not allowed for production.
If you go for a cheap but reliable SAN, look after Promise VessRAID machines.
If you don’t want to spend any money, have a look at freenas which is pretty nice, full featured and uses ZFS in the back.
Almost a year ago I have similar doubts and ( bad ) adventures trying to use Freenas and nas4free, and it only gave me lots of head aches !!!
My advice is forget about it, with ZFS is just not stable ( my record was 5 days before weird and inexplicable freezes ! ) .
With native BSD file system works OK, but the performance are realy poor .
People in this list pointed me to a stable solution :
plus this :
6 mounths up and running smoothly and rock solid !!!
I am using nfs with dedicated switcher, the performance are excelent ...
