Question

How does digital ocean spaces work?

What if my storage space in droplet is already full, and I am using s3fs for an image folder in my web app, will i still be able to store images in that folder even the droplet storage is full? Please enlighten me I’m a newbie with Amazon S3 and DO Spaces.

Hi there @ITAscend,

Yes, this is correct, you can store files on your DigitalOcean space independently from your Droplet’s storage.

Check out this tutorial to learn more about object storage and if it’s right for your use case.

Also for more information on how to work with spaces I would recommend checking out this documentation page here:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
