P2000 Connected DAS vs NAS

Dear,

We are middle in a discussion with different vendors to implement 2 DL380 Hypervisors running hyper-v connected to a storage box P2000,
We will have some physical boxes running as backup server with a attached tape library , spare DC, and a development server that will be virtualized in a later phase.

The question is:
How do we connect our P2000 G3 storage,
1) DAS
2) NAS

we know that if we go for DAS we only can connect 2 hypervisors and not 3.

Price is not that different.

My CEO wants to have a clear view of this point,
What are (dis) advantages of both, Do we have to keep something in mind ?

My opinion is to go for NAS, as it seems to provide more flexibility. but I need to clarify this to my CEO, which is not that easy :-)

Thanks in advance for your feedback

If you connect the servers via fibre channel and a switch, you can connect many more servers.

Hope this helps!
