With the continuous growth of global big data, the demand for data cloud storage capacity will continue to expand in the future.
This article aims to use less money to create a private disk without any speed limit, such as the Windows experience.
After investigating many open-source web UI file managers, KodBox deeply moved me. Its rich functions were beyond my imagination. The summary is a simple, efficient, smooth, cloud storage and new experience of a collaborative office.
The operation time of the network disk is discrete, especially for personal and family websites. Keeping a machine will produce a lot of waste. (The database also needs to be installed on the machine. Otherwise, there is a separate database cost.) For example, when people sleep in the early morning, the machine resources are wasted. At 8 p.m., when family members are having fun, the resources of one machine are not enough, such as when everyone is watching different 4K HD movies online. (They can also download it into their local PC or mobile phone first.) Serverless solved this very well. It is paid by volume and can be expanded at any time if there is a request.
Alibaba Cloud Function Compute (FC) is a fully hosted event-driven compute service. If you use Function Compute:
You can quickly build any type of application and service with Function Compute and only pay for the resources that the task consumes.
If you deploy the Kodbox project to Function Compute, database persistence uses Alibaba Cloud file storage, and content storage uses Alibaba Cloud object storage service. Then, we can get an exclusive personal and home network disk. "Computing + storage can be extended indefinitely, network speed is not limited, and hundreds of file formats are supported for online preview, editing and play, and easy sharing and collaboration.”
After logging on, you can experience a web-version windows operation system and preview, edit, and move multimedia files on your NAS disk or OSS.
1. Activate Alibaba Cloud Function Compute (FC)
2. Activate Alibaba Cloud file storage
3. While logging in to the Alibaba Cloud console, open the guide tutorial start-fc-kodbox and follow the guided tutorial (please see the end of the article).
4. Login with the admin account, enter the background storage management, and add the suitable storage, such as adding an OSS Bucket.
In the article named "Use PHP + Serverless to Help You Solve These Pain Points!," we discussed the best practice of PHP application in Serverless and its value in detail. The most important point is that the instance of FC pop-up evolves into a quintessence execution environment. PHP Web engineering is stored in NAS. At this time, we can use Kodbox + FC to implement a Windows experience like WEB UI to manage PHP engineering on NAS, including upload, overwrite, delete, and modify.
