Internal Network File System on ECS

On ECS, NFS is part of the overall installation, and no additional setup steps are required.

The internal NFS does not have a backup feature.

Storage provisioner change

On ECS, Longhorn is used as the underlying storage provisioner for any new internal workspace on CDP 1.5.0. A storage class named longhorn with csi driver set to must exist in the cluster for new internal workspaces to get provisioned. Each workspace will have separate 1 TB internal storage.

Internal workspaces running on CDP 1.4.0 and 1.4.1 use the NFS server provisioner as the storage provisioner. These workspaces when upgraded to 1.5.0 will continue to run with NFS Provisioner. However, NFS server provisioner is deprecated now and will not be supported in the 1.5.1 release. So, customers are expected to migrate their 1.5.0 upgraded workspace from NFS server provisioner to Longhorn if they want to continue using the same workspace in 1.5.1 as well. If not, then customers should create a new 1.5.0 workspace and migrate their existing workloads to that before the 1.5.1 release.
