Preferable file server configurations

Our AI Group is about to purchase a MacIvory to add to our 3670 we
already have.  We'd also like to replace our 3670 for reasons of
hardware maintenance costs to get more bang for the buck (with an XL400,
another MacIvory, etc), but with the knowledge that whatever will
replace it must also replace its role as a file server.

My general questions: What file server configurations have others found
most preferable, in terms of performance and managability?  Anyone tried
to use a MacIvory as a file server, and if so, what kind of performance
hit was taken (if any)?  What about using a Sun4 or a Vax as the file

If anyone else indicates interest (speak up!), I'll summarize responses
and post them back.
