The following external components are required in a production installation of Jive.
For non-trivial deployments, we recommend that you provision a unit of shared storage on a SAN/NAS to store binary content. This single unit of storage must be mountable on all the web application nodes in your installation, and should be easy to expand because the amount of content in Jive grows over time. This shared storage will be used both for storing binary content such as uploaded documents, and for storing the output after the Search server has indexed the text content. For more information on binary storage see Configuring a Binary Storage Provider. To estimate the amount of disk space you will need for this component, see Sizing Binary Storage.
