I’m planning on building a nextCloud instance in AWS. My team as asserted that the Application and Database be on separate servers.
I’m not clear on how files are stored in nextcloud. Given that I need about 250 gigabytes of storage for the files I’ll be hosting, do I:
- allocate 250 gigs to the application server, and throw X amount at the db server
- allocate 250 gigs to the db server, and throw X amount at the application server
I’ve read the Deployment Recommendations but it doesn’t get into this specific case. I’m pretty sure I should be doing option 2, but would very much like if someone could confirm or point out docs that would confirm this assumption.
