Global Document Storage


Not applicable
is the Global Document Storage a new thing in Update-1 ?

the install guide says to allocate 10-Gig for it, will it grow bigger than 10G?

It was present in 8.0.1 also. In 8.2.1, its importance was highlighted more, that is all.

Depending on your use case, it could grow large. But for the initial implementation, only a couple of GB is enough.

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?
