Fit more RAM. SQL can cache the entire SIMS DB in RAM and just write the changes to disk. Speeds up SIMS no end. My SIMS VM barely reads and writes.

I'll just point back to the LSI Switched SAS idea - it kinda makes a SAN out of your MSA60s and SAS HBAs in your virtual hosts.
6Gb/s SAS Switch
Should work out cheaper than a full on SAN, and give you failover capability. I've yet to test this out, but have had various reports of it working with virtual environments.

Awesome... I'll be ditching the 2003R2 VM for a 2008R2 box... RAM-a-plenty!
