One Repository - Multiple Locations
How can you set up one repository to support assets in multiple locations? In particular, would it be possible to have certain folders/assets archived for example to Amazon S3 while still having current worked on assets stored on the local SAN?
In Nuxeo the component that deals with asset management is called a Binary Manager. This component is pluggable, and we provide several that can store assets externally to the Nuxeo server.
In particular, we provide a package called the Amazon S3 Online Storage, which is a Binary Manager that stores all the assets in an Amazon S3 bucket, but still caches the most recently used ones on the server for efficiency. Everything is done transparently.
