Implemented Storing Attachments on Seperate Server

    I've always made use of an 'uploader' system to allow members to upload files. The system I used could store them on a seperate server alowing me to make use of cheap storage/bandwidth for storing/serving what I considered to be non-core and/or bulky data whilst leaving my expensive, fast and limited bandwidth and storage space available for what I considered to be the core data - namely posts and threads.

    This may not be utilised by many and as such not be worth implementing, but it's cedrtainly worth suggesting!

    I don't use a seperate server but at the same time if I had the choice to I would.

    A lot of people want to use CDN's which falls in line with this suggestion.

    I support this.

    Although I'm not suggesting a 3rd party, and not just images or media files - I'm suggesting xenforo still do the attachments management, biut on a seperate server

    Where does this suggestion stand and what if any is the work-around? Is there a way to specify another server to use when members upload images and other attachments?
