Currently I have a web application being built ground up, and i'm trying to wrap my head around how to split the file attachment storage off the main web server. I have a dedicated server running the website/application, and would like to split the attachments off to a second server.
The most obvious to me (however possibly ridiculous) is to have a drive on the remote server mounted locally if possible. So as files through the web application can be uploaded as if it were a local drive, yet they are saved on the remote drive. However, i'm not sure if this is possible, similar to "mapping a network drive" in Windows I guess, however at a server level.
