You are infinitely wrong that a SAN will not improve performance of the database. First off, a SAN can do many more IOPS per second than direct attached storage, mainly because of the caching features and RAID configurations. Also they are fiber channel disks as opposed to SCSI.

SAN also offloads the overhead of the CPU on the host machine from doing I/O requests and you will also see a big perormance gain there as well.
