Filestore documentation

Filestore instances are fully managed NFS file servers on Google Cloud (GCP) for use with applications running on Compute Engine virtual machines (VMs) instances or Google Kubernetes Engine clusters.

You can create and manage Filestore instances by using the Google Cloud Console or the gcloud command-line tool, and interact with the NFS file share on the instance by using standard operating system commands.
