For more complex and loaded applications, it is worth to centralize your shared data within a single container to get more simple and flexible exports’ management (including access permission control – e.g. read-only for one node type and read-write for another).
In confines of CirrusGrid, a Shared Storage Container is recommended to be used for sharing files across multiple layers or even environments of a single account. It is specially optimized for data storing (i.e. is focused on performance and provides the enlarged disk space amount).
Apart of that, upon using a separate Shared Storage Container, you get the following benefits:
In addition to actually data storing, such a structure can be also efficiently utilized in case you need to share some common configuration files, that are to be used by nodes on different layers and/or environments.
Herewith, your CirrusGrid Shared Storage Container can be also used as an external storage, i.e. you can expose data from it out of the Platform for being available over the Internet.
In such a way, you can share some content for the required third-party service or another developer (providing him with personal access permissions) or, generally, get a quick access to your data from any point with the CirrusGrid-hosted NFS server.
By using this option, you can even build your own intercloud sharing solution and/or operate with the same data from different CirrusGrid installations – find out the required NFS server configurations for such an implementation within the linked guide.
