Selective external storage


#1

Is it possible to store selective data to an external database?

  1. For instance, I would like to store photographs of inspected products in a custom field. Now, this would be way too much data for cloud. Is it possible to store the images locally while keeping all other data on cloud.

  2. Is it also possible to store old data onto a backup server and use it only when required? I am talking about something like photos on icloud, where latest photos are stored locally on phone, but older photos can be moved onto remote storage and are retrieved on demand.

Most definately yes, with some knowlege of say sql and other assorted tool options that is quite doable.
