When user uploads image to AWS S3 from web app hosted on DO, is that outbound or inbound bandwidth transfer?
Hi! I’m still new to DO and its services but I’m planning on creating a web app that will allow users to upload images to AWS S3. I intend to host the web app on a DO droplet. Would the image upload be considered inbound or outbound bandwidth transfer? From my understanding, the image is uploaded directly to S3 but since it’s being uploaded from the web app, I would think it’s outbound (please correct me if I’m wrong).
On a different note, would you recommend performing image resizing/compression on the droplet or offloading that to AWS?
