Considerations when Accessing Local Files from a Guest Application


Is there a way to view the folders/files of the prod instance? I have created a folder “Files” in my application in which I store files that users upload. I would like to be able to view the folder and files in it. Something like when you FTP to a server, or web based type of UI or if it is in a fileshare that s fine too.


You probably won't have access to the files because the servers are not reachable. For that type of functionality, I would recommend you using a fileshare instead of local filesystems. If the UI instance is moved to a different server all of your files will be removed. One of the advantages of using the cloud is that your application can scale seamlessly and relocate based on any changes to the underlying infrastructure, using the local filesystem will break your apps ability to react.
