    But where can we store files at scale? Well, object storage is what we're looking for. Object stores break data files up into pieces called objects. It then stores those objects in a single repository, which can be spread out across multiple networked systems. We can also use distributed file storage such as HDFS or GlusterFS.

  • Multiple DS units acting as one?
    1 project | /r/synology | 23 Mar 2022
    What you look for is a clustered file system. Like As long as all units are closeby with low latency there are a couple solutions that allow you to create distributed storage solutions of various kinds. Key value stores applenty, clustered file systems that pretent to be one file system etc. If you have geographically distributed solutions with high latencies it becomes harder. Most open source systems don't work really well in this scenario. There were a couple attempts like Hydrabase but they didn't go so far. It normally is solved by doing two clusters and then replicate between them.

    I'd imagine most managed service providers are going to require a credit card, though most of them have a free tier. If you want to take an unmanaged approach, maybe look into Gluster. I've used it before and never had issue with it, but I also had an infrastructure team that set it up, so I'm not familiar with the challenges that way:
