Cloudflare R2 Joins Our Secure Storage Options

We announce immediate Cloudflare R2 support: Elevate your data storage with our seamless API integration for cost-efficient image management.

We’re excited to announce an update that many of you have eagerly anticipated: Cloudflare R2 is now available as an external storage option through our API. This addition opens up a new realm of possibilities for optimizing your workflows and storage strategies, ensuring that our platform continues to meet the needs of our users.

What is Cloudflare R2?

For those who might not be familiar, Cloudflare R2 is a highly scalable, zero egress fee storage solution that competes directly with traditional cloud storage services by eliminating the costly egress fees associated with moving or accessing your data. This means that you can retrieve your data as often as needed without incurring extra costs, a game-changer for businesses managing large amounts of data or those looking to optimize their cloud storage expenses.

Cloudflare R2 stands out by integrating seamlessly with Cloudflare’s extensive suite of security and performance features, offering an end-to-end solution that not only stores your data but also protects and accelerates its delivery. Its compatibility with S3 APIs ensures a smooth transition for those already using Amazon’s storage services, making it an attractive option for businesses looking to reduce costs without compromising on functionality or reliability.
