We have 600GB storage space in Web front end configuration with search server.
Can any one have any idea, like this configraion will work normal storage device
or required SAN server for better performance.

As a general rule, DAS is much faster than SAN for Indexing/Search. In
fact, Microsoft has moved their query servers to direct storage  for a 5x
performance increase.

There are many variables that can affect performance, so I wouldn't make
such a blanket statement. A properly configured 4Gbs fiber channel SAN can
be much faster than DAS. A lot of organizations use DAS only for swap space,
and boot from the SAN. This also makes disaster recovery much easier.
