hp ibrix :x9000 client or nfs client?which is better?why?

Hi,
we have hp ibrix x9000 filesystem and we want to know whether nfs clients will suffice of we should go for x9000 clients?which is better.Guide doesn't state this clearly.
what are advantages or disadvantages of both?which is preferred?

Using the client software allows more manageability with your hosts.

Connecting to a NFS or cifs share directly...gives you no management capability.

Is the client software worth it? Depends on your config requirements and how much grainular manageability you are looking to gain out of your cluster.

I have not used the client software as of yet. As soon as I get a chance..I am going to play with it.
