Shared application space for departmental applications
Application Storage provides a storage backend for systems and applications that require shared storage or have bulk storage requirements (generally over 2TB). This may include systems which handle video recording or image processing, geographic information systems, or applications clustered for resiliency purposes. Application storage provides a redundant, shared space to store application data. The data stored here will have snapshots and replication to another data center to ensure availability.
- Allows for many types of standard drive mappings (i.e. Net Use/Net Map/Mount)
- Replicated to another site and has snapshots
- Potential use cases include: Storing application files that need to be accessed by multiple servers.
