It isn't correct to say that only NetApp is supported there are other NAS vendors out there, and I'm not entirely clear that plain NFS as opposed to a NAS system is unsupported provided you mount with the correct options - it would be good to see a note that refers you to the need to buy a NAS device. I'm not sure I'd be trying os supplied nfs any time soon mind you.
