As the guys say, it depends. NFS can be very successful on that size
of cluster, if attention is paid to the performance of the NFS server
and the bandwidth you have to it.
SGI Enhanced NFS as a for instance.

Please let me add to your list though - contact your Panasas salesman.
I really think you could use a supported, commercial solution here.
