I’m hosting my app with Digital Ocean, on a server that has 20GB SSD Disk-size.
In the near future I want to enable image-uploads for my users.
About 5 - 10 Images per user only.
It’s a bit unclear to me if I HAVE to use a seperate Service/Provider (Amazon S3 for example) to store these images, or if this is just optional. Can’t I just store them in the MongoDB?
Are there any downsides to this?
(As a sidenote: I dont really need the super-rad-fastest-app-in-the-world)
My current understanding is that using a seperate Service for storage is optional.
If I wanted to go that way, I’d use a package like Slingshot.
If not I’d go with the CollectionFS package instead and store the files in MongoDB.
Is this correct?
Thanks for your help.
