Hey guys,

i want to move the storage from the database to the filesystem and i want to asked if is there a possibility to outsource the storage to a dedicated server in the “standard” or do we have to look for a solution outside of zammad?

best regards

There’s no way to use a different storage method apart from filesystem and database.
Filesystem always writes and reads to / from /opt/zammad/storage/.

Still nothing in the roadmap about integration with external services like Google Drive via REST API, for instance?
Keep attachments in DB isn’t a good idea (OK, in my understanding). Local filesystem - much better but not ideal as well. External services like Google Drive might be used as a Filestorage Backend and provides an API for that, probably you could think about such intergration?
This will make good product even better.

We generally do not provide any ETAs or roadmaps.

you could put that storage directory on an NFS Server if you want it on an external server. Don’t think there might be an issue with this approach.
