Default SAN question

I have found myself between two design alternatives and am wondering which is the safer/ technically correct path to take. I need a SAN starting with 75 host ports which must be expandable to a maximum of 200 host ports. I am wondering whether to use one large director switch (FOr example one with 256 ports) or go for a Core/Edge design which might incorporate many many switches and provide the necessary ports. Is there anything essentially wrong with using a standalone director switch for a large SAN? Is there any technical advantage to either method?
