When you mean Shared Storage, is it a SAN? With a SAN we can have the maximum performance and High Availability related to storage, but its price is very high, and many times (depending on the solution) it is not a cost-effective solution.

On another hand, there are some scenarios where a centralized storage is not sized correctly, the organizations rely on them for the critical and heavy applications and then they have a poor experience because of the bad design (processes bottleneck in the SAN, shared disks between LUNs, etc).

What matters the most, are the I/O requirements given by the application, with that information you can compare and design what is the best solution for your environment. Unless there is a special regulation in the organization, i.e. Some companies require to store all critical data in a SAN as a compliance rule.

For a request like this you need to give us more info, like size, some idea of the I/o rate, your RPO/RTO, applications involved etc etc
More info is better than less.

Spinning Rust might be the way to go but SSD's might also
