Can I run Cockroach on async NFS3 share?

Hi CockroachDB community!

Most databases do not work reliably on NFS shares (especially mounted with async option).
Eventually you end up with corrupted data.

Can I run CockroachDB on NFS share?
Assuming I have 3+ nodes


Hi Dmitry.

Like other databases, CockroachDB cannot run reliably on NFS shares.
If you wish to use a networked storage, consider using a SAN instead and share a block device over the network, and let the local OS manage the filesystem.

Hope this helps,
