Typically I'd attach an application server to the san (or nas) and have it run the apache server and use the san (or nas) as it's storage...

right but what if i dont have or dont want to use application server. Will I be able to have a stand alone NAS or SAN attached to my router and run apache server and be accessible for internet?

I imagine that would depend on what software your san has running on it.. I know the ones we use around here wouldn't be able to do that because they don't run a traditional OS one could access to install Apache on..

All NAS means is Network-Attached Storage. It isn't any one particular product. Netapp makes them, EMC makes them, ect. Some of them do have linux or bsd based internals.. but the ones I've used don't allow anyone to log in and get to a console and install/update software. They just provide a web interface themselves that you can go to and configure the allowed methods of connection and whatnot...

Most NAS/SAN solutions are sold as appliances that don't allow you to get inside and tinker with the software.
