Now WordPress site can store all its content (pages and media) in cloud. This makes site powered by enormous scale and reliability of cloud storage.
Take your WordPress site to cloud with the help of Cloud Storage Engine (ClouSE)!
WordPress-To-Cloud solution makes it possible for WordPress blogs to store all their data like pages, images, files in Amazon S3 or Google Cloud Storage.
Now WordPress can seamlessly get all the benefits of cloud storage - high availability, high reliability, quick and easy disaster recovery, and serving content in a highly scalable fashion.
WP2Cloud plugin is designed to complete the migration of a WordPress site to cloud storage.
Cloud storage is awesome. It is highly- durable, reliable, available, and scalable; it has infinite capacity, it is the most mature and thus stable service - all of it on a Pay-For-What-You-Use pricing model.
Using cloud storage to store the website data has the following benefits:
WordPress-To-Cloud supports the following primary deployment choices:
As the best deployment practice we recommend moving to the cloud the whole website, both its content (that is stored in WordPress database) and media files. Consider using our ready-to-run WordPress on Cloud Storage - Oblaksoft Yapixx, the 1st WordPress website on Amazon S3 as a starting point and a reference of such configuration. Refer to the complete WordPress on S3, WordPress on Google Cloud Storage, and WordPress on S3: do it yourself step-by-step guides for extra pointers in setting up WordPress on cloud storage.
The website server hosting decision can be made independently from the decision where to store the website data. A Web server running the website can be hosted pretty much anywhere. Depending on your needs, the Web server can run by your favorite hoster, by a cloud provider, from your premise, as an instance in Amazon AWS or Google Cloud.
You can keep your current hosting arrangements, and only move the website data to cloud storage using WP2Cloud and ClouSE. With your data being safe in the cloud storage, if needed, you'll be able to easily change a hoster or a cloud, that is without any data migration whatsoever.
WordPress-To-Cloud solution works with nearly any hosting/cloud provider, but perhaps not with every hosting plan or stack supported by your provider. Feel free to contact your provider and us so we could attempt to make it work in your specific circumstances.
WP2Cloud stores media files such as pictures, music, videos, documents in the cloud. Media files that are uploaded to the WordPress are actually uploaded to the cloud storage, not to the local file system of the Web server hosting this website.
The media files are served from the cloud storage, the website pages now refer to the media files via direct cloud storage URLs. This makes your site directly powered by the enormous scale and reliability of cloud storage.
To make serving media files from Amazon S3 even faster, the plugin can be configured to use a Content Distribution Network (CDN), such as Amazon CloudFront. When the plugin is configured to use a CDN, the website pages refer to the media files via the CDN URLs. The CDN serves the media files from locations around the world to provide the best performance.
WP2Cloud plugin natively makes the website faster, more available and scalable:
WP2Cloud plugin relies on Cloud Storage Engine (ClouSE) for MySQL to enable integration with cloud storage. In WordPress-to-Cloud solution, the site uses cloud storage as its primary storage. The storage configuration becomes transparent to WordPress. WordPress stores the website's data in MySQL, while ClouSE is plugged into MySQL and places all data into cloud storage, rather than using local disk. ClouSE plays the role of a database gateway for cloud storage, combining the best of local and cloud storage by delivering performance and security of local storage, plus all the benefits of the cloud storage.
Supported cloud storage providers are:
Other storage providers may be added in the near future.
Our goal is to design the best WordPress-to-Cloud experience for YOU. Cloud storage is very powerful, we'd love to take full advantage of its capabilities!
