Subject [jira] [Commented] (JAMES-729) Store the emails in Amazon S3
Date Fri, 31 Aug 2012 09:18:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-729?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13445790#comment-13445790

Eric Charles commented on JAMES-729:

S3 is slow, so you you will need a more efficient storage system to serve the metadata (search
on it,...)
But to begin, yes, a new mailbox-s3 (in mailbox project) would be awesome.

> I would be great if James could store the emails in Amazon S3. 
> There would be some advantages to this setup.
> 1) once the email is on S3, the email is safe and will not be lost.
> 2) the email is available from anywhere. 
> In the case you have a lot of mail traffic, you can have many James instances and all
of them will have access to the same store, so any of them will be able to fetch the email.
> S3 has 2 apis: SOAP and REST.  (I prefer REST because it is simpler to use).
