My consumer app will directly request data (average 5MB) from DO-Spaces. Roughly 200 users will be downloading files same time. Is this bad?

Is this achievable with a single DO-Space?

For a single DO-Space what is the,

1) maximum total data transfer rate in MB/s (when downloading large files)?
2) Maximum concurrent number of connections (number of files downloaded to users around the world at the same time) possible?

Is this not what Space is designed for?
If not what are my alternatives?

Thanks in advance

I believe they will rate limit you.

On DigitalOcean, I would use a VPS, or multiple VPS and a load balancer.
