we are currently evaluating OC as replacement for our aging “File Drop/Exchange”. As we are receiving large files (multiple GB, some 50GB or even larger) and are hosting OC “off site” we are trying to figure out what the best way for attaching storage is. Since the Enterprise Edition is not an option at this point we are somewhat limited for now.
My thought was to add external storage via SFTP as this can be easily extended as needed. The SFTP storage is in the same data center as the OC installation hence bandwidth should not be an issue.
Are there any drawbacks of using SFTP storage vs local storage in the VM?
In my small scale test, everything went well but I’m looking for some real live examples/ideas.
