Creating a file share for multi-node deployment

We are trying to setup a 2 node Qlik Sense cluster and it requires a File Share.

Qlik documentation states: 

  • A network file share is required for the storage to be accessible by all servers in the site. In case of a single-server deployment, local disk storage may be sufficient.

What is the best option for a network file share which is secure? 

Our Infosec team does not approve a Windows Shared Folder as it is insecure. NFS storage was approved but Qlik Sense does not support NFS and if it did it would be slower.

Re: Creating a file share for multi-node deployment

Would your infosec team be open to using a Windows Folder Share if it was encrypted? You could create an encrypted folder share and then install the certificate on both nodes so that they can read from it.

Re: Creating a file share for multi-node deployment

QlikSense requires a Windows share (SMB). Could you perhaps set the servers on a more secure network and only route traffic for https from the outside?
