Caspio High Usage FileStor automatically transfers designated files from your database tables to our cloud file storage service and enters a new URL for each file in a designated field of the same table. The file can then be accessed as much as necessary without incurring data transfer.
For maximum reliability, we utilize Amazon S3 for this service.
Please note that High Usage FileStor is only meant for non-sensitive files because the cloud space is publicly accessible.
Save on Data Transfer - High usage apps that utilize images or files can drain your account data transfer quickly. With FileStor, you can completely eliminate this problem because data transfer from the FileStor is essentially free.
Save on Database Storage - Once a file is transferred to the FileStor, it may be automatically removed from your table to free up the space for other data.
Improve App Performance - Downloading from the file space is typically faster than from a table.
Unlimited data transfer included
You can request this service by opening a support ticket. Please provide the following information in your request:
- Recommended: Replace filename with a unique GUID. GUIDs are very long random strings that ensure filenames are never redundant.
- Use a consistent prefix concatenated with the value of a designated unique ID to create a new file name with the same extension (MyFile<UniqueID>.ext). For example, file.jpg becomes MyFile21.jpg and myotherfile.gif becomes MyFile22.gif.
- Keep original file name - note that duplicate file names will overwrite previous files. Also, FileStor file names are case sensitive so file.jpg is not the same as File.jpg.
