Can Confluence be configured to store attachments on a SAN or NAS?

Can Confluence be configured to store attachments on a SAN or NAS? If not has anyone run into any scaleability issues?

Is this a feature that is on anyone's radar for development?

It seems that Confluence don't have such feature to store attachments on a NAS,

However, as a former Linux sysadmin, i would suggest you(if running any Linux or UNIX variation) to:

  • Create a NFS filesystem export on the NAS giving RW permissions just for the Confluence Server
  • Mount this NFS on your Confluence Attachments dir, with the option -o soft, to avoid "hard sync" and performance problems;

I think it would be a better solution than rely on "Tool Side Configuration", using directly a Network Filesystem ;)
