Is there any plan for a media stroage api, was looking to see if it was possible to use S3/Cloud Stroage for media assets. So that Elastic Beanstalk can be used effectively.
I don't think storing the images in the database is the correct option when S3 storage is far cheaper and faster to run then a database.
Have had a look at the code and it seems very tightly coupled with File and Database, so creating a plugin seems a lot of work.
