Use shared file systems or object storage to access common data - Sustainability Pillar

Use shared file systems or object storage to access common data

Adopt shared storage and single sources of truth to avoid data duplication and reduce the total storage requirements of your workload. Fetch data from shared storage only as needed. Detach unused volumes to free resources.

Recommendations

  • Migrate data to shared storage when the data has multiple consumers.

  • Fetch data from shared storage only as needed.

  • Delete data as appropriate for your usage patterns, and implement time-to-live functionality to manage cached data.

  • Detach volumes from clients that are not actively using them.
