Use this information to install and configure S3 Connector as an alternative content store.
Using an Alfresco
(AMP), the connector
supplies a new content store
which replaces the default file system-based implementation
for the standard and (optionally) the 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
Starting from version 3.1, the S3 Connector module provides out of the
box content store subsystems, which can easily be set up based on the most suitable
configuration. The subsystem approach allows a more flexible use of the S3 content store, even
in conjunction with existing content stores.
You have two options for installing the S3 Connector
The steps for both options are very similar, but the second allows you to add
S3MultipleBuckets as a third alternative for the S3 content
