Assume that you are having some external storage systems, such as Amazon S3 and Digital Ocean Spaces, etc along with local storage of server disk. MetaFox supports to set up different storages for file types (musics, videos, photos, etc.). For example, you can set up to store videos on Amazon S3, music on Digital Ocean Spaces while others are stored on the local server. The detailed guide on how to set up storage systems, such as Amazon S3, etc. will be in other topics.
