Data stores provide disk space for your virtual servers and operating systems.  Data stores are attached to compute resources, and may also form part of a data store zone. All CRUD operations are available to data stores.

There are three types of data stores supported by OnApp:

  1. Traditional logical volume data stores based on a centralized SAN.
  2. ESXi datastores used under VMware.
  3. Integrated storage data stores (see Integrated Storage chapter for details).
