DigitalOcean Spaces is an object storage service designed to make it easy and cost effective to store and serve large amounts of data.DigitalOcean
Spaces is a low-cost data storage service from DigitalOcean. For just $5 per month, you get 250GB of storage, 1TB of outbound transfers, and unlimited uploads. Perfect for use as a CDN to host files such as images, videos, large PDFs and much more! This allows businesses to scale their websites’ performance at greatly reduced prices and complexity.
Spaces + Gravity Forms
In version 1.3 of SyncS3, we added a new setting to add your own endpoints to your file uploads, overriding the default. DigitalOcean provides you with a Spaces endpoint that you can use with SyncS3 to send files to your Space instead of directly to Amazon S3.
Send File Uploads Straight to Amazon S3
SyncS3 for Gravity Forms lets you send your file uploads to any Amazon S3 bucket. Store your images, videos, and other files on Amazon’s high quality infrastructure.
To sync file uploads with Spaces, you’ll need your space’s keys (access and secret), bucket name, bucket region, and DigitalOcean Spaces endpoint. Plug these into the SyncS3 settings in your file upload field (or your form or global settings).
Your settings will something like this.
Now, when a file is uploaded via Gravity Forms, it will be pushed to your DO Spaces bucket!
