File Storage and Storage Resources
As mentioned, Assets typically reference a digital file and associated metadata. To ensure scalability and support for a range of file storage devices, Ooyala Flex Assets store their digital file in a Folder Resource. A Folder Resource in turn belongs to a Storage Resource. When looking at an Asset details for an Asset that references an underlying digital file, you will notice that a Folder Resource name is provided. This is a reference to the Folder that the file resides in.
