Migrating/archiving documents to separate database
Dear Mendix devs./architects, We're currently running a V4 app that is on 90% of it's maximum capacity data wise and instead of buying more capacity, we'd like to start migrating part of our data to an external (we're thinking of Azure) database. The data should always be accessible and retrievable from our Mendix app. Does anyone have experience with this and could help us make initial choices? Hope to hear from someone! Kind regards, Tijmen
IMHO it is cheaper and faster to buy extra filedocument storage from Mendix. There are connectors in the appstore for Amazon S3, Dropbox, Box and you could use Microsoft Graph Connector to connect to sharepoint. But it all means keeping track on where which files are and building those connectors. Not something you could do in a couple of hours.
Alternatively you can configure Mendix to use an external azure blob store directly.
This way you have full control and only have to migrate once.
