Sharing Content (files, videos, audio, images) across Kentico Instances

Paul Crees asked on February 5, 2016 07:20

I am investigating the best way to share content across websites in Kentico. Some sites could be in the same instance whereas others may not.

I was wondering what is best practice for sharing content like media across Kentico Instances as well as across kentico websites in the same instances. Is it best practice to have a file server with the webservers that host media like audio, video and images and use network shares or a dedicated web server acting like a media server.

My suggestion would be a CDN with maybe Azure. If you're the owner of all the sites, then it's not a big deal. If you are not the owner of all the sites, then this becomes a problem, no matter what vehicle you use as your media sharing tool because you won't be able to set permissions to restrict one website owner from accessing another owners information.

If using an Asure CDN, all sites or instances would essentially connect to the same CDN and store their files there. I've not tested this out but hypothetically this should work.

Unfortunately all the media has to be hosted on our own servers due to policy. Hence I thought file server would be a good option.
