When utilizing Cloudinary's automatic-backup feature, you can ask for the backed-up resources to be stored on your own private S3 bucket (available for all paid plans).
While it is a requirement that the backup-partition is only managed by Cloudinary's backup mechanism, sometimes it's important for customers to understand the structure of their data storage.
Below is an example of the general structure of a backed-up content path inside the S3 bucket:
Some additional info and highlights:
- For the sake of redundancy, the public-ID is used as another folder level, and the version as the actual filename.
- It's very important that the backed-up content remains untouched where it was stored by the automatic back-up mechanism. Any change to this storage may break the internal consistency with our databases and result in data corruption.
- The aforementioned convention is subject to change at any time and is given for information purposes only.
