Relocating from File blob store to S3 blob store


#1

When setting up a new blob store I noticed there’s an option for an S3-based blob store! Super nifty!

I’m migrating over from nexus2 and I’m setting up my blob stores as file blob stores-- I know they work and they work well-- but I’d love to experiment some with S3 and if it works out, convert/relocate/migrate (whatever the correct verb for this operation is) existing file stores to S3. The knowledgebase is pretty light on the S3 subject though.

What’s the general wisdom on whether it is good to make the change, what the considerations are, and if it is indeed a good fit, how to make the change?
