I have a cluster of droplets that complete video transcoding jobs when available. In order to serve the videos to the user, I need to store these videos in a central location (block storage on the my main server). What’s the best way to do this?

You can’t use block storage on more then one system at a time, but you can however create a file share in many ways to allow the cluster servers to access it. One way would be over SSH FTP to access the remote server (one holding the block storage drive) to access it.
