    All hosting providers need some sort of storage. It really depends on how much storage they will need that determined their options. The scope of this answer is really big. You may need to revise your questions to be a little more specific and you might get some responses.

    Most smaller hosts use a HDD that is in their server for their storage needs. However, it is not uncommon for larger hosts to use storage arrays and distributed filesystems. I guess it all depends on the type of business you are trying to target.

    Don't take this the wrong way, but perhaps your company should select another person to handle customer and affiliate interaction. I find your posts difficult to read and, given the lackluster quality of the responses you have received, I am not the only one. They seemed filled with marketing lingo, with minimal details about what your company does, provides, and is inquiring about.
    Game Servers are the next hot market!
    Slim margins, heavy support, fickle customers, and moronic suppliers!
    Start your own today!
