RStudio has very few requirements on the storage side. If you are interested in leveraging load balancing/clustering, you will want a shared file system which many of our customers will implement using a SAN of some sort. The IO requirements on the storage layer are driven more by how much reading/writing you will do. Many data sets that are < 2GB will do fine with an entry level SAN and you could probably get away with NFS for that type of volume. However, it is difficult for us to provide recommendations on this front, and the best option will depend on your specific system and requirements.
