If you want to make sure that you have a local backup of all your resources, we suggest using Cloudinary’s automatic backup option to an AWS S3 bucket owned by you. All your uploaded images will be copied to your own S3 bucket, while Cloudinary manages all images, transformed images, and metadata in its own private buckets. This option is available to all of our paid plans with no extra cost.
Cloudinary also allows using your own S3 bucket instead of Cloudinary’s buckets. This option is available for Premium plan and requires permission assignment to Cloudinary's AWS user through the settings page. Notice that Cloudinary's files are stored in a very specific folder structure, using internal naming conventions.
It doesn't seem that there is a Premium plan anymore. What is the equivalent plan now?
The Premium plan is still available. The Premium plan is now a taylor-made plan, therefore upgrading to such a plan can be done by contacting us and we'll be happy to assist with offering a plan which suits you best.
Can you provide more up to date information on the premium plan and how to set up using our own private s3 bucket.
The Premium plans are completely customised. Please contact us with your usage requirements and we will be happy to tailor a plan that will suit your use case, including a private s3 bucket.
I just want to use my S3 bucket instead of Cloudinary Bucket, we have a pro plan,
will it cost any extra fees?
We don't have any specific charges for using your own storage bucket as a replacement for Cloudinary's S3 buckets, but it adds some complications to the integration and it's only possible on our enterprise plans and with the assistance of our solutions team
Additionally, there are several implications to using your own S3 bucket to store your account's assets, which can affect the costs from your side:
If you have an enterprise plan and would like to set up a new sub-account that uses your own S3 as primary storage, please contact us directly and we'll explain the process in more detail.
If you need to migrate existing assets, the basic process is that you copy everything to the new sub-account, update your delivery URLs, then delete the old sub-account - if you're in the process of upgrading from Pro, please ask our sales team for more information
