Use this information to install and configure the Alfresco S3 Connector as an alternative content store.
Using an Alfresco
the connector supplies a new content store which replaces the default file system-based
implementation for the standard and deleted content stores. The content store implementation
is responsible for reading and writing content streams using the S3 API, however, in order to
improve performance a local Caching Content Store is used which uses the local disk to cache
recently-used content items.
Note: By default the module configures the caching content store
to use a maximum of 50 GB of disk, with no limit on individual file sizes.
The S3 Connector
uses a single S3
bucket and all content is stored in that bucket within one of the following directories:
<bucket-root>/contentstore for the main content store
<bucket-root>/contentstore.deleted for the 'deleted' content store
Note: Always install the S3 Connector
cleanly. Upgrades from a local content store to S3 are not supported, and will corrupt the
