#1MinuteTip Here is an interesting blog post on how to store files on Amazon S3 using Salesforce functions. But why would you want to do this? Here is an interesting calculation for you to consider.
|1GB File Storage Cost on Salesforce:||US$ 5 Per Month|
|1GB File Storage Cost on Amazon S3 Standard:||US$ 0.16 Per Month|
As you can see, storing cost on Amazon S3 is almost 97% cheaper than storing it on Salesforce. Ah, now I have your attention.
In this post, Salesforce shares a solution that allows you to reduce file storage consumption by offloading documents to Amazon Web Services (AWS) using Salesforce Functions. This contains sample implementations for exporting and importing documents from Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). Something definitely worth exploring.
