Image RemovedImage Added

See FileCloud AMI here on AWS Marketplace.


titleHow Does It Work?

The FileCloud AMI image is built on top of Ubuntu 16.04.

  • FileCloud stores the meta data and file share information in MongoDB database which is already pre-configured in the FileCloud AMI.
  • The actual files can be stored in EBS or S3.
  • For scalability and redundancy, we recommend you use Amazon S3 for production.
  • We also recommend to take periodic snapshots of your running instance for disaster recovery.

Best Practices for an organization of up to 100 users:

  • Select a t2.medium, m3.medium, or m3.large instance
  • Use Amazon EBS for FileCloud stack (FileCloud application, Apache Webserver, MongoDB Database)
  • Use Amazon S3 for cloud storage to provide a scalable, redundant infrastructure to satisfy any business requirement
