I was recently looking for a hosting service for an application I was developing. I decided to investigate Orchestra.io , as I was expecting it to get surges of traffic at specific points during each year and needed the application to scale accordingly. In the process of reviewing documentation for Orchestra.io, I found that it doesn’t allow file uploads . Instead, it’s recommended that Amazon S3 be used for file hosting
