This is important for the machine hosting director. If database is 
hosted on different machine even that shouldn't be awfully loaded in my 
opinion. As far as the box hosting storage daemon is concerned, that 
dosn't need much of resources (like CPU or RAM - unless one uses NFS 
which I wouldn't), the only things to pay attention for that box would 
be network connection capacity and/or filesystem speed, whichever 
becomes a bottleneck.

I hope, this helps.
