I tend to be a firm believer in Netapp's expertise and engineering thoroughness. Like other major storage companies, when they release a solution targeted at a particular technology and opportunity, it has been tested and tried many times. Perhaps Netapp can give you case study information or implementation guides that can help you make a decision.
When implementing, follow their instructions to the letter and everything should be fine. I do not know if Microsoft supports it or not. That wouldn't stop me from using a facility supported by Netapp for Exchange. They are one of the best companies in the business. I say that without having a vested interest in them.
