Quite correct.

Whenever possible, try to have input/output operations on local disks. This is 
not only valid for MIRA, but for all programs which have to move around 
gigabytes of data.

Any kind of networking layer (NFS or whatever) will slow down input / output. 
Perhaps with the exception of specialised high-end gear from vendors who'll 
charge you the equivalent of several hundreds harddisks worth to get the 
network up and running. Though I cannot really vouch for it as I never tested 
MIRA on such an environment.
