Standard storage is where the JSON/dump pairs are saved while they wait for processing. The location of the standard storage is determined by the configuration parameter storageRoot found in the :ref:`commonconfig-chapter`.
The file system is divided into two parts: date based storage and name based storage. Both branches use a radix sort breakdown to locate files. The original version of Socorro used only the date based storage, but it was found to be too slow to search when under a heavy load.
