Temporary In-Container Storage
Every service in your environment has a fixed amount of storage available to it, accessible via the filesystem. Code services can write to the filesystem anywhere they wish (e.g.
/app/uploads), but when a service is redeployed (either via build or manually), any local filesystem changes will be lost. Do not use the local filesystem for any data you wish to keep. Additionally, local filesystem changes are only available inside a single container, meaning that HA code services and workers will not be able to access them.
HIPAA-Compliant S3 Buckets
Datica can set up an S3 bucket for you, covered under our BAA. Data in S3 is unaffected by redeploys, making it an ideal location to store files or large amounts of data. Read more about how S3 buckets are set up on The Platform here.
If you’re interested in adding an S3 bucket to your environment or have questions, contact us.
