Cloud Object Storage
While Render supports storing data on disks, it would be great to have a really easy to use object storage feature with the capabilities of AWS S3. This would be accessible via S3-compatible APIs and will be used to store arbitrary blobs like images and videos.
Marked as "Planned" since 2019 - The official recommendation is to use AWS, but Render is marketed as "All Your Services in One Place".
We need this feature please Anurag Goel ! At least an update on this issue would be promising. Looks dead currently.
Michael Auderer: I hear you — this feature has been planned for a long time. This year, it's still something we're looking into, and we'll share more as soon as we can.
This is the top voted PLANNED feature request. Anurag Goel is there any chance this will be added in 2023?
Anurag Goel Any update on this?
Michael Selberg: Sorry, it's likely not going to happen this year. Still on the list though, given the demand!
Can someone explain what are the current limitations using Render disks, compared to a cloud object storage?
David: One big drawback is that services with disks cannot horizontally scale. So, if you want multiple app servers but still want to have persistent storage, you have to either use S3 / an equivalent or build your own storage service
Yes, please, would very much like an S3 equivalent in Render
The problem with using Persistent Disk is that only one instance can use at a time and a S3-inspired disk would solve this so it can be used by multiple instances
Anurag Goel any update on this? Would really love to be able to build my product all within Render!
What's the status on this?
Would be great to use for Rails ActiveStorage!
I'm also interested to hear if there's been any progress on this. Been awhile!
