OVH Object Storage
I'm planning on moving all my static content over to OVH's Object Storage. Very good SLA and triple replication. But will this be a better solution then CloudFlare Free? It's my first time using Object Storage and OpenStack so I'm not 100% sure if it will benefit me.
My current setup for all my static content is OVH VPS SSD(1 cpu, 4gb ram) + CloudFlare Free.
Can anyone help me decide? (btw, its not possible to run Object Storage behind CF).
Object storage and cloudflare are two very different things
I know. CloudFlare is not for storage. But I'm thinking more about speed and performance.
Are you maxing out the 100Mbps connection on your VPS with uploads or running out of space?
No. Just looking for a change
There should be some reason why you are looking for a change. Unless you've got nothing else to do of course
Go to Delimiter I heard they adopt the same business model that we have.
If neither of those things are a problem, you're not going to see much benefit moving it over. CloudFlare CDN is probably going to give you more benefits than serving out of a single location.
If you're not persuaded regarding the gain maybe you could keep the two solutions for one month.
During that month you will be able to run any test you want et check if the benefit is real.
I think you want CDN.
cloudflare won't give you much of a speed or performance boost. Seems what you need is more power or probably some page optimization, look into the options you can implement without spending first and then if you don't get the results you want, you can look into upgrading.
So you claim HA, redundancy, and top tier infrastructure and blame third parties when things go wrong every other month?
My 2 cents:
Obj Store is for dynamic assets, for example, the uploaded content from the user. You have no control of the content or the size, and don't bother to setup the redundancy or backup for the upload folder. Outsourcing this complexity to a obj store seems a sane solution.
Never tried OVH, but talked to the delimiter Obj Store:
Try play both to find your sweet spot.
