I've used NFS for many many years on 100s, maybe 1000s of servers in this 
time. It's great. "Just works" and does exactly what it says on the tin. I 
use it at home, for my clients, on my hosted servers, everywhere. (well, 

BUT... If the NFS server should go offline for whatever reason then the 
client systems that are reading/writing the data will stall, and depending 
on how you've got them setup they will stall hard and not continue until 
the server returns.

I haven't tried it with asterisk yet, so I do not know what will happen to 
the voicemail system should the NFS server go offline for whatever reason.
