Hi group, so I am about to start a new droplet, but this time, I am looking for suggestions in regards to storage solutions.
I had a thought that I can just start a small $10 or $20 droplet for serving the website files, but then have a storage solution for my images.
I am a photographer and have a large number of images that link to my Wordpress Gallery. Looking at roughly 100GB.
I have searched and read a lot of articles but would like to know your suggestions. Here is what I have found so far, please feel free to comment on the below as I am unsure on any of these.
Use Amazon S3, mount it to the Droplet and use it as the image file server that Wordpress can use as a gallery. (Is this slow because retrieving each image between servers can have a ping of 180ms+?)
Somehow connect Google Drive as the main Wp-content/uploads folder? Possible?
3 )Somehow connect Dropbox as the main Wp-content/uploads folder? Possible?
