Does App Platform to Spaces upload count as Outbound Traffic?

If my backend service is running on App Platform, and it uploads files to a Spaces object storage instance, will that count against my App’s outbound transfer limit? I know if I was using, say, S3 it probably would. But since it’s all DigitalOcean, I was thinking maybe it wouldn’t.

Hey there!

Outbound traffic from your app to your Space wouldn’t count toward the outbound bandwidth of the application.

Hope it helps!


Just need clarification here. Is this true? or it’s only true as long as the Droplet/App is on the same region as the Spaces.
