Supporting dual links

Is there a NAS system out there that supports dual links? We are about to install dual links to all our mission critical servers, between two Cisco 6509's, on 1Gb links. We would not want to create a bottle-neck on one switch before we start.
I'm not an expert on all the configurations of products but I am fairly certain that most of the systems-level NAS products support multiple links. "Systems-level" refers to Network Appliance, Auspex, Compaq and EMC among others that I believe have such configurations available. Also, Tricord does too through the use of links to two different NAS systems that have the same aggregated view of the data.
