14.1. Introduction to Gear Storage and Disk Space

As an application is developed and the changes are pushed to the Git repository, the amount of available disk space to run an application slowly decreases. This is because Git stores all repository information, whether it is still required or not. Other aspects of developing and running applications also result in wasted disk space, such as old log files and unused application libraries. In such cases, either additional storage is required, or the existing disk space must be optimized to achieve the best possible application performance.
Gear storage and disk space can be managed with the client tools to optimize application performance.


The feature to add additional gear storage is disabled by default. Contact your system administrator to enable this feature for your account. See the OpenShift Enterprise Administration Guide at for more information on tracked and untracked storage administration.
