Let's say I have a website with frontend and backend. The website allows users to upload some data ranging from hundreds of MB to GB. How do you effectively upload this data?
- The easiest way would be to upload it from client/browser to the frontend server. Then send it via API or something to the backend server which has connected data storage, where we'll save the data. This would, however, run really slow, because the upload will be twice as big.
So, do you have any ideas? Or is there some kind of general way to do this effectively? Does it include CDNs? Or should I store the data in a database as base64 strings if it'd only be few hundreds of MB pre file?
