How To Configure DataStore CLuster for Vmware 5.1

Please advice best Practice  Doc to configure Data store Cluster in 5.1.

 Recently i have upgraded form 4.1 to 5.1..so yet i am pending to upgrade all vmfs form 3 to 5.

Can we Configure Data Store Cluster using both VMFS ? any limitation ?

will there be any Impact for RDM/ISCSI Directly attached to different VMS ?

What are the Best features and draw back using Data store cluster in 5.1 ?

Will there be any Risk Or outage required for Prod Environment.?

Any Hardware/Software dependency  ?
