Sia and web hosting

  • hi there,
    I'm just wondering if Sia would be good for web hosting. In this case, users are uploading files to the website and creating a data base. Other users are searching and retrieving those files. Is Sia fast and flexible enough for this kind of application?


  • Sia can only host files as objects - there can be done no computing on the files while they are on SIA..

    @congamabongo The faster the PC and internet the faster sia is. I wouldn't say that it is stable enough for web hosting. But small scale it is definitely usable in that way with SiaDrive. Small picture sized will work fine.

    Make sure you tag me @bryan if you need to me respond.
