I know there are several options, I’ve heard everything from SSHFS, NFS, object storage all the way to storage OS, my issue is I need something fast and reliable to serve a media website built on Wordpress or similar cms. However I may want to do something with django also.
I have a home server I’ve been using over sshfs for some things but for a media site I don’t think that would be fast enough.
Any suggestions on the best method to store things? I also need to be able to access these items on an as needed basis through SFTP or an interface. I’ve heard more than once that storageOS is the best option but after reviewing their site I don’t understand how it is persistent storage if it’s a container that is stored on an inaccessible node.
How can you back that up, manage space, etc?
I’m sure that a lot of you were looking at this question laughing because it seems so silly. Then there are probably some people who are just learning and saying OK yeah this is a legitimate question and then there are probably some people newer than myself you don’t even realize they need storage yet.
