    If I have a large SAN, Can I create many SQL Server Clusters?
    on the otherway, is it possible to create many cluster servers on one
    available SAN?
    divide SAN storage area among many Cluster Servers?

    One of the key points for SAN and the justification for its cost is that it
    can be easily shared among many hosts. So yes, you can many clusters sharing
    a SAN.

  3. Yes, but you need to plan the LUNs carefully so that you don't overload a
    particular channel in your SAN and end up causing an I/O bottleneck.
    Yes. See above.
    Each cluster and each resource group will require its own LUNs.
