Using Fly for file storage

I know S3 is the typically obvious choice for file storage, but I’d love to avoid using AWS for what I’m building. I’d like to go all-in on Fly.io.

Is there an established way to use Fly for image hosting?

Same question, but for SQLite/Litestream/LiteFS data backups?

Easiest would be to run an S3-compatible object storage app such as minio.

It’s an old tutorial, but it should still work.

Depending on your needs, you might want to add more than 1 instance, in different, close-by, regions, to replicate your storage.

I don’t have a turnkey solution unfortunately. We are planning on eventually providing a S3-like object store, but not for a little while!

For LiteFS, we have plans to make a real-time backup service available in the near future. The current focus is on stability and usability of LiteFS but after that we’ll be working on the backup service.
