General Practice for File Storage
I’m setting up a Digital Ocean droplet for a client and I’m curious as to what’s the best practice for secure document storage. The files we’ll be uploading are sensitive and need to be very secure.
Should I pursue storing these files in the cloud on Amazon S3 or something like that, and retrieving them and streaming them to the clients browser, or should I store the files on the droplet?
What are the pros and cons of both?
