I discuss S3 here but other cloud based storage can be used as well. S3 is just the most popular in this category and is in wide use.
s3cmd - we have been using the version from github , Mostly for multi-part upload support. This prevents us from having to split files up before uploading to S3.
There is released alpha version of this version here

…happens to costs when the system grows? e.g.has around 410TB of data on S3, what if that keeps growing at a rate of 25% every month, like it has been in the last 10 months?
I created a couple of deployments in PlanForCloud to explore these questions and the results are very interesting - they show how important it is to get an idea of costs and budget for cloud spend prior to using the cloud :
Their main data is stored in S3.
MySQL really doesn't like supporting more than 100 open connections.

…understand is why you aren't more upfront with your customers about it. After all, the last time S3 went down, your status board showed all green except for a tiny icon that indicated something might actually be amiss . Just a reminder:
After the guff you took from the last outage, you'd think that you'd be a little bit more upfront with customers (i.e. the internet). But there were no two days beforehand ). At first …updates (the last one tweet was
…got a great status dashboard, showing history and uptime. We use it all the time and depend on its S3 service for our products. Sure, there have been some shaky launches in the past (looking at you , EC2). Overall, however, we haven't had many problems — except until recently. It was a good example of how transparency, or the lack of transparency rather, can damage customer trust.
S3 went down last week. So we checked the status dashboard to see what was up. Everything was reported …
…working with a bunch of large files, though, you're probably better served by uploading them to S3 orand serving them from there.
Another option to look at might be Dragonfly , which takes a different approach to photo processing than does , resizing on the fly rather than on upload. This might obviate the need for but at unknown (by me) cost. We hope that some of this will be helpful in your next photo-intensive project.

What follows is the story of a bug we encountered during development of what will become the Chef 11 API server. The story unfolds as we began to integrate and test Bookshelf, a new component that handles cookbook file storage. Bookshelf exposes a REST API that behaves just enough like the AWS S3 API to allow the other parts of Chef that make use of it to seamlessly switch between Bookshelf and S3.
We began integrating Bookshelf into the Chef Server once we had passing integration …
