About the App Controller Library


Updated: June 1, 2015

The App Controller Library is a collection of resources associated with VMM or Windows Azure clouds that users can move, store, and share.

App Controller makes available three types of shared storage:

  • File shares on your network

  • Private cloud libraries

  • Windows Azure storage accounts

The Shares node can contain a list of network file shares added to App Controller by administrators. Both administrators and self-service users can store files and resources they intend to move into public or private clouds. Access control to a share is managed by the file server. Administrators can add or remove file shares in the App Controller Library. Self-service users with proper permission are allowed to create or delete folders in a share, and copy and paste files between shares. Files can be copied from local shares to public or private cloud libraries.

To copy resources from a network file share to a private cloud, the App Controller machine account needs read access to the file share.

To copy resources from a private cloud to a network file share, the App Controller machine account needs write access to the file share.
