In the above image, we can see that a Storage Container with 1K storage space is full with 7 types, and has more space for items. Storage containers are super easy to move around, which means you can just take the container out of the DSU and keep it elsewhere. (Note, only the DSU can manipulate the items inside the Storage Container).
Following in the spirit of AE, Storage Containers have a max storage, and a max data types amount. Each storage container can hold to 7 types.
The container input and output can be configured. Select the DSU configuration (the redstone on the bottom right), and above the compass there are two empty slots. The top is input and underneath that is output. Click one of the slots, then select what item you want filtered.
If the player breaks the DSU, the DSU will be lost. The Storage Containers will drop on the floor, and no data will be lost, however the DSU feature will be lost, and another Loader Wrench will be required to make another.
In the special workbench, craft storage cells to be used to craft storage containers.
In the special workbench, craft storage containers to place into deep storage units.
You may create a sorting system by using the sorter. You first need to create a sorter loader then link modules.
Put down a double chest and click it with a sorter loader. This will convert the chest to a sorter. Then use a link module to click a chest where you want your inventory to reside. An example would be at your home base, you would click the DSU with your prismarine shards in it with the link module. Then go back to your guardian farm where you just set up your sorter. Place the link module inside the sorter. Now your hoppered drops into the guardian farm sorter will go directly to your prismarine chest at your home base.
To create a sorter create a Sorter Loader.
