- NFSv4 Support instead of NFSv3 on other managed stacks, ensures improved performance (especially for a large number of files), stronger security, support of the FUSE directories export, and more.Note: Any Jelastic-managed container can receive mounts over the fourth version of the protocol, but only Shared Storage Container can export data over NFSv4.
- Auto-Clustering option automatically configures a reliable storage cluster, ensuring data safety. In case of failure of one or several nodes, the AutoFS client automatically switches to the working instances on the next read/write operation attempt.
- Enlarged Disk Space compared to other common-purposed Jelastic nodes is provided for Shared Storage Container, allowing to work with bigger data volumes. Herewith, the particular value depends on your service provider’s settings and can vary based on the account type.
- Optimized Performance due to all the necessary software being preinstalled (e.g. NFS & RPC for NFSv4, GlusterFS for auto-clustering) and the default features of the Jelastic PaaS (elastic vertical and horizontal scaling, efficient pay-as-you-use pricing model, comfortable UI with file exports and mount points support, etc.)
And below we’ll consider how to set up such Shared Storage server inside Jelastic PaaS, some tips on its management, and use case specifics:
