Support for REST based storage systems

May 10, 2012 1:58 PM



I have a question on the target storage for the movies served by the Flash Media server. In your FAQ you mention that data can be stored on a local server or remote location. I assume you are referring to CIFS and NFS mountpoints? Do you support any REST based storage solution as a backend for the Adobe Streaming server? For example could I store my data on an Amazon S3, OpenStack,... compliant storage solution.



Referring to the following FAQ:


How does Flash Media Server integrate into my network?


Flash Media Server runs on either Windows or Linux 64-bit operating systems. The XML-based configuration and C++ plug-ins allow a great deal of customization. Media files can be stored on the local server or in remote locations. Plug-ins can be configured to provide access control, directory/file mapping, authentication, or additional security features.

    I should thank you for asking such insightful query. Give me few days - i will let you know if this is possible currently or not. And if its possible - how one can go about doing it.

    Unfortunately there is no direct way of doing this. Basically you would have to access S3 buckets from using any EC2 instance ( On your FMS machine - create a mount using public IP of EC2 instance and then use VirtualDirectory settings of FMS.
