Hello

I have over 870,000 images for my products that takes up alot of space "100GB", is there a way or a module to have the images hosted remotley, for example on Rackspace without having the images in my Webhosting-

That would take up to much space and is expensive to use webhosting just for storage.

Using Opencart 2.0.3.1

You won't be able to use the resize function unless OpenCart can write the resized images to the file server.
If you havent taken it into account; There are a lot of different filesizes for each image which would probably amount to 200gb total for you. Check the image/cache folder to see what I mean.
You should ask the host of the file server if they accept external commands to write files to their server. I believe this is prohibited usually. And I think (but might be wrong) there's a maximum amount of files for one folder in Linux (40.000), so you might ask this as well ;D

Attn: I no longer provide OpenCart extensions, nor future support - this includes forum posts.
Reason: OpenCart version 3+ ;D

Thanks!

After some searching it seems to be complicated, but i managed to find lots of websites with great prices for VPS and Dedicated hosting, so that solves my problem :D, i only did check the most popular webhosting sites at the begnining which doesnt offer much space and hardware for the money :D, for the images i have them splitt through many folders :).

It's the easiest solution.
I have a 4TB machine so 200gb is like :joker:
