I’m building an app that will the users to store a considerable amount of self-generated content. It’s images in the first place, but it may be extended to videos later on.
So I am wondering which backend services the community is using for this and what your experiences are. I’ve already implemented an S3 connection in combination with the slingshot package, but the response times I get from AWS are sometimes very long.
I’ve also considered using CollectionFS/GridFS, as this seems to be a scalable architecture due to the sharding possibilities, but I don’t know how good this actually performs in larger scales.
So, how are you doing it, and what are your experiences with your approach (performance, costs, other things to consider)? Any input is welcome. Thanks.
