thanks for information.
I don't think that term "global document storage" was present in the 8.0 install guide, but it is in the 8.2 install guide even for a single server. that's why I asked.
your blog appears to be talking about its importance in a cluster environment.
my (future) production server is only a single server, not a cluster.
is there a formula for calculating the size requirement of this thing? since it's a production server, just want to be extra careful and be properly prepared.
or, perhaps I should ask it this way: under what circumstances will it become very large, out-of-controlly large?
