Enterprise environment are moving more and more towards service oriented functional groups. SAN as a service, database as a service, etc. So SAN guys are saying DBAs shouldn’t worry about this, they use gigantic arrays with 100′s of spindles, they guarantee performance, etc. What are your thoughts on this?

I would say that the SAN admins are nuts if they think that the DBAs aren’t going to worry about storage performance. There is no magic SAN dust which keeps everything running fast all of the time. If you put enough load on the array then performance will be impacted, no matter how many disks...
