If you have ever wished for some data storage option other than git-LFS when using Renku, you are not alone - and we completely agree that we need a more flexible way to both store and access data in Renku projects. We are committed to making this happen in the short-term, but first we need to design the solution.
So, if you have opinions about how data should be handled in Renku (cloud storage? NAS? Google drive? Dropbox? All of the above?) please head over to the design document pull request and feel free to comment. (Note: the actual document is here). We look forward to receiving your feedback!
