iOmega has some great NAS such as StorCenter ix4-200d which can be NAS or iSCSI.  It can replicate SQL databases if you have 2 units

I'm just looking for one device to host a SQL database. Can iOmega StorCenter ix4-200d do that?

It'll hold the data but it won't run the SQL executables, even a Windows Storage Server based NAS isn't licensed to run SQL (although it can).

All of them, for example http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF05a/12169-3798502-3954626-3954626-3954626-5031436.html?dnr=1 (Dell and IBM make them too). However running SQL on it is specifically excluded from the EULA except where the database is used as part of a storage application.
