File storage - S3

Written by
Travis Bernard

S3 file storage is like Dropbox, but for web developers.

Creek uses S3 to store all of your media files, so that they are inside your own cloud storage account outside of Creek.

Advantages of S3:

  • You can choose your own cloud hosting provider, each with competitive pricing: DreamHost or Amazon S3.

  • Your files are accessible inside S3 just like a traditional FTP storage space (through tools like Cyberduck).

Getting started

We currently recommend Amazon S3.

Go to our Amazon S3 tutorial for setting up S3.
