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.
