Welcome to WordPress on cloud storage. The site is completely stored in the cloud!

April 25, 2012 in Albums

Welcome to WordPress on cloud storage. This site uses ClouSE – the Cloud Storage Engine for MySQL to store its data in the cloud storage, such as Amazon S3 or Google Cloud Storage. Using cloud storage has the following benefits:

  • Storage cost scales with usage, no upfront reservation is needed
  • Storage consumption scales up and down with the amount of data stored
  • Storage is extremely reliable and durable by its design
  • Pictures and other media content are served by the cloud storage directly, which makes this site highly scalable
  • No database backup and recovery needed

Cloud storage has been able to power static websites; now it can power sophisticated web software such as WordPress.
