Shared Drives

Shared storage accessible from machines within a Private Network

Overview

Shared Drives are designed to provide a data source accessible to one or multiple machine concurrently. Drives are commonly used to share files between machines and behave similarly to a local office file server (referred to as network-attached storage or NAS). Drives are mounted using standard tools within the OS.

Drives provide a file system interface and file system access control such as strong consistency and file locking. All file systems deliver a consistent baseline performance.

Shared Drives require a Private Network. Shared Drives will be available to machines added to this Private Network.

Tip: See the Mounting a Shared Drive tutorial for instructions on how to make this storage available for your team.
