This paper includes information on the components and architecture of an App Volumes deployment, as well as how to plan for

  • Storage
  • Scalability
  • Performance
  • Security
  • Availability
  • Recoverability

This paper also helps you to understand the following topics:

  • Mount on Host
  • AppStack and writable-volume templates
  • AppStack and writable-volume storage groups
  • Writable-volume policies

We have developed a diagram that gives details on the data flow in an App Volumes deployment:

We have also developed a diagram for you on a multi-data-center deployment:

In addition, we included a set of best practices that we have developed over time for the SQL database, AppStacks, and writable volumes.
