I am looking for guidance to help plan a Windows cluster.

IMO, the software is expensive and buggy at best. I am not a SAN admin so I thought I would ask here. I am currently running a 9960 and a 9570, Microsoft Clustering, and Volume Manager (Storage Foundation). What options are available for expanding volumes on the HDS side, and what are the terms, etc. I need to know to tell the SAN admin? Seems to me the HDS should be able to do this on the hardware side, then I should be able to expand in Windows as soon as the space shows up.
Sorry for the newbie nature of the question, I just need someone to tell me what my options are. I searched the forum first and found a similar question from eDk, but it didnt completely answer mine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks-
