Collection of large files


#1

I’m considering using Meteor for a project where:

  • Each user would have about 5 unique video files synchronized in a collection between client/server. (I would use one of the file collection packages such as meteor-file-collection or CollectionFS.)
  • Each video file is approx 33 MB and would not be updated very frequently (say once a month).
  • If all goes well, there could eventually be 5,000 users (corresponding to about 167 MB in each user’s HTML5 browser and 833 GB of total video storage on the server DB).

Any thoughts about how MongoDB and collection syncing would perform? Or is Meteor not really suitable for this type of application?
