Amazon S3 vs Local Storage - Where Should You Store Files Uploaded to Your File Transfer Server?

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Sun, Dec 17, 2017 @ 09:37 AM

Overview

Some modern file transfer servers already have the built-in capability to store uploaded files in different places. For instance, in JSCAPE MFT Server, you have the option to store uploaded files either locally (i.e. on the same machine as the system running the file transfer service itself) or to a remote server or storage service. One of these storage services is Amazon S3. But why would you want to store uploaded files there?

In this post we explore some of the pros and cons of using Amazon S3 as your MFT Server's file storage system compared to the default option, i.e. local storage.

While a DMZ consisting of firewalls and reverse proxies can, in most cases, meet such requirements, providing network services from the internal network to external clients while also prohibiting inbound connections can be quite challenging. This little reverse proxy enhancement can simplify things.
