Hello NextCloud community. I’m new here - great app!
I have NextCloud 11 running on EC2. I’ve successfully configured S3 storage as primary, and things look good. I’m just hoping to clarify something that doesn’t seem too thoroughly documented.
According to the OwnCloud docs, using S3 as primary storage means I cannot use encryption:
The current implementation is incompatible with any app that uses direct file I/O and circumvents the ownCloud virtual filesystem. That includes Encryption and Gallery…
However, the similar page on NextCloud does not seem to list that restriction. Other searches don’t seem to uncover anything specific - but my apologies if I’m missing something obvious.
Can I assume that the OwnCloud restriction applies here as well? Also should I assume that leveraging the S3-side encryption provided by AWS is the only way to encrypt this data at rest?
Thank you very much - I’m super excited about being a new convert and running my own cloud.
