Druid Deep Storage

Hello Team,

Is it possible to use external VM’s hard-drive as deep storage in Druid?

If yes, could you share any reference document/link.

Thanks & Regards


Hi Soumya,

Can you explain more about what you mean by external vm’s hard-drive.

One way of handling is use NFS and mount those drive to ur vm locally . Please refer this link : https://druid.apache.org/docs/latest/dependencies/deep-storage.html

hope this helps.

Thanks & Regards

Hi Soumya,

You can go through below doc which explains about multiple available options for the deep storage :


In case of local deep storage , anything that can be mount locally like NFS, Ceph, etc. can be used as deep storage, So if you external VM storage is mounted on NFS for example, I believe you can use that as deep storage.



Thanks Tijo, Vaibhav,

Believe NFS would meet our requirements.
