OwnCloud External Storage

Postby luckytobemyself » Thu May 21, 2015 11:35 am

Can we use Azure Storage (BLOB) to store data instead of local folders, same as OpenStack Swift?

Hi,

the documentation available here:

https://doc.owncloud.org/server/8.0/adm ... cellaneous

describes that only Openstack SWIFT can be configured currently as the primary object store in the Community Edition. Additional the Enterprise Subscription is also providing the S3 backend:

Thank you for quick reply. Can any developer work on this and make this possible? Can you point me towards any paid development that I can subscribe to or any developer forum for this.

Just elevating this to see if there is any further work afoot to support Azure storage? We are evaluating external storage options, and Azure fits our needs (not only for storage but for other cloud services and VMs). We are hosting OC on our own server, but scaling up storage on that is cost prohibitive.

Many thanks.

PS: I didn't want to add another feature request to one that might be already in place. Also, I couldn't find the External Storage app on GitHub: is there one?

Hi,

that app is located within the ownCloud "core" here:

https://github.com/owncloud/core/tree/m ... s_external

A search for "Azure" at the core issue tracker:

https://github.com/owncloud/core/search ... =%E2%9C%93

doesn't reval that some one has created a feature request for supporting Azure Storage nor any work put into the support.
