If you need to store files on a filesystem that can be access across a network, using our fileshare service is a good option. The fileshare service will provision a Linux based instance on which it will setup either (or both of) NFS and/or Samba (SMB/CIFS).
To setup the service, first follow the general instructions on our Service catalog page. Then follow these instructions:
Give your service a name and optionally a description.
Select which availability zone you want to provision in. We recommend europe-se-1a if you are unsure.
If you want backup, check the “backup” checkbox and select an amount of days you would like your history stored.
Select disk-type. See the Storage types article for more information.
Select your instance flavor. We recommend sticking with the default.
Select your SSH-key.
Under “local network”, select the network on which you want to run the service.
Check “NFS” if you want to install support for NFS.
Check “Windows Samba” if you want to install support for SMB/CIFS.
Select the storage volume size. This is the volume on which you will store your data. Its growable later on as per the Extend a persistent volume article.
Press “create”. You will get further details on how to connect to the service.
