After initialization, QoreStor contains a single default storage groupe named DefaultGroup.In QoreStor, data is stored in containers, which are stored in storage groups. Some containers function like a shared file system. These types of containers can be assigned a specific connection type, for example, NFS/CIFS or RDA (including both OST and RDS clients). Containers can then be accessed using NFS, CIFS, or RDA.
