What are the consequences of having your production Virtual Machines on the same storage as your file shares?

Hi Everyone,
Im hoping I can get some help. I'm looking for specific recommendations, articles, and real data that will support the consequences of having your production virtual machines (ie. sql server, exchange server, domain controller, web server) sharing the same SAN or other storage product. I have an Equallogic SAN with 15k SAS drives. 1.53 TB Raid 5+0. We currently have 10 production virtual machines running in a Vi3 infrastructure on two ESX Servers. While understand that it is possible to have your file shares and virtual machines on the same SAN I'm looking for the consequences and worst case scenarios. I appreciate any input although I really need articles or reports from valid experts in the industry.

Thanks for your help
