PHFS is very similar to group volumes. They are both a shared storage among a group.
However, the design of group volumes is one PVC per group. It is not convenient for graphql or other components to access the group volume because it is required to mount then it can access it.
In contrast, the PHFS is a single PVC and can be accessed by s3 rest API as well. It allows PrimeHub system to provide richer interaction on the PHFS.
Comparing to group volume
