Everywhere I've worked individual work folders have always been designated with user-specific locations whose specific locations are differentiated with system parameters. E.g., something like:

For Windows PC, WORK usually uses the local hard drive as opposed to LAN or other network storage. You can point them anywhere you like as long as you have read/write access.
In UNIX environments, it is not uncommon to see a central directory and/or filesystem that's built for speed only being used for WORK. Since these SAS datasets only last for the duration of a SAS job, there's no need for mirroring or stripping.
