Overview

The Amazon S3 extension for Magento 2 allows retailers to upload their catalogue and WYSIWYG images straight to Amazon S3.

Overview

Back to top

Amazon S3 is a popular file storage solution that allows web apps to host images in the cloud. Setting up your web app to use cloud storage removes the need to use the local filesystem to store images, which allows companies spin up more servers to handle more traffic without having to worry also copying over pre-existing images onto these new servers. Cloud storage also provides some other performance benefits, such as shifting a lot of the load of retrieving images for a customer to S3 and the ability to easily set up a CloudFront CDN for your images.

The Amazon S3 extension for Magento 2 allows retailers to upload their catalogue and WYSIWYG images straight to Amazon S3.

This is done by overriding the built-in database file storage mechanism to upload to Amazon S3 bucket instead of MySQL. By handling integration with Amazon S3 in this manner, this extension will work nicely with third-party extensions that properly use Magento's file system mechanisms as well as work with any future Magento functionality.

Account & pricing

You will need to create an Amazon AWS account to get started. The cost to host your images on S3 varies depending on the AWS region that you are using and on the kind and amount of images that you upload. Click here for more detailed pricing information, https://aws.amazon.com/s3/pricing/

 

Benefits

Easy to use

This extension is easy to use with little configuration! You only need to follow a few simple steps (and one of them is simply to create a copy of your images as a precaution) to get up and running!

Sync all your media images

The following images are automatically saved to S3:

  • Product images
  • Generated thumbnails
  • WYSIWYG images
  • Category images

Magento can now scale horizontally

Complex file syncing between multiple servers is now a thing of the past with this extension. All your servers will be able to share the one S3 bucket as the single source of media.

Easy integration with CloudFront CDN

CloudFront CDN supports using S3 as an origin server so you can significantly reduce load on your servers.
