Storage Recommendations


 * These are generic recommendations, for specific requirements contact Druva support.  

^ As per vendor recommendation.


  • Disable read/write disk caching on disk in case of DAS.
  • inSync storage components should not share the physical disks. Operating System should be on a separate physical disk.
  • NFS/CIFS/iSCSI not recommended because of possible latencies and throughput restrictions imposed by the network, which may cause performance issues.

Supported File Systems:

  • Windows: NTFS
  • Linux:   EXT-3
