Hello, I'm working on a SilverStripe 3 site and would like to store images and files on S3 so that I can scale my site across several EC2 instances. In the past on 2.4.7 sites I had used the Uploadify module to do this, but it doesn't seem to work with SilverStripe 3 because of the framework and datamodel changes. Is there any sort of support for S3 built in to SilverStripe 3 for this, or a module that supports S3 as a storage option?

Hi,
we are using many amazon services. We have cluster of servers with EC2 instances and on each instance we mount S3 storage as a external drive.
We are using s3fs
su -c "/usr/bin/s3fs aws_bucket local_dir -odefault_acl=public-read -oallow_other -ouse_cache=cache_dir" user_name

than you can use S3 as local drive(directory)

Fuse can download:
