VIP File System

On the VIP Platform, media files that are uploaded to a WordPress site are not stored on the web container’s filesystem. Instead, an API is used to store the uploaded files in a separate read-only service called the VIP File System. This enables the WordPress application to automatically horizontally scale more efficiently across multiple hosts.

The VIP File System is a globally distributed object store that is seamlessly integrated into WordPress applications on VIP. The VIP File System provides high performance access to media files associated with a WordPress site. When browsers request these files, they are served through a dedicated system using the same domain as the site, with a long time to live (TTL).
