My server is CentOS 7 and my Nextcloud is 27.0.0 running on Docker behind Traefik
I’m using the Nextcloud Client for Mac 3.9.0
I realized that all data transfer seems to traverse the NC server.
My storage is Backblaze EC2, shouldn’t files go straight from the client to Backblaze?
I use ‘nload’ on my CentOS VM, and every time I upload or download a file to NC via the Client, I see the bandwidth rising on the server and the amount of data equal to the size of the file I’m supposed to be transferring to Backblaze.
One of the points of having external data storage would be to take advantage of the storage price, the other point would be to avoid the bandwidth transfer costs on the VM (which is hosted somewhere else)
Is the data supposed to traverse the NC VM even if the storage backend is external?
Shouldn’t the data go straight from the Client to the storage backend, with the server having only some sort of metadata with pointers, etc?
