ScenarioBest approach
I have a large e-commerce product catalog with multiple images, videos and data sheets per product. I want to upload them in a secure and replicated storage via API or CLI, categorize them with custom tags and metadata (taxonomy) and publish optimized variants of these assets to a large and/or global audience. Loading times are critical for my SEO and conversion. Also, I am looking into introducing 360° product views and videos to create engaging e-commerce digital experiences for my customers.Headless DAM
I need to centralize all my media assets and allow non-technical users to upload and manage new images, videos and PDFs via an intuitive UI and Widget integrated in my business applications. My users need to perform slight modification on images in an embedded image editor and annotate / comment on assets during the creative process. I have designers working with the Adobe suite and need to retrieve and upload assets from a central gallery via built-in plugins.Collaborative DAM
I run a real-estate platform and have a large media gallery of property images and videos. I need a media widget for my customers to upload new property media on my platform. Upload of large files must be fast and each media asset must be enriched with customizable metadata and tags for easy retrieval.
I want to introduce or improve current 360° views of the listings on my platform and need to deliver optimized and fast videos.
My marketing teams need access to the same property images delivered on my web apps to create digital experiences such as landing pages and interactive sections on partner websites.

Multi-tenancy: the Filerobot token

Wether you need to enhance sharing and collaboration around media assets within siloed teams to increase productivity or manage millions of product images, videos and data sheets, Filerobot's multi-tenancy will enable you to address all use cases from a single pane of glass.

Single or multi-brand scenarios? Single or multi-site setup? Interactions between multiple internal and external teams as part of your Content Operations?

Filerobot's scalable multi-tenancy will prevent asset duplication, save time in categorizing and retrieving assets and overall structure your media asset library to set your organization for success when it comes to building engaging and fast digital experiences.

Each tenant is called a Project identified by a Token ({token}) in the Filerobot File System. A project hierarchy can be created with users and teams given various access permissions to a single or multiple projects.

For the purpose of this documentation, the token for sample media links used is fdocs. An usual production token is a 8-characeter string, such as fabcdefg.

Content ingestion network powered by reverse CDN

Filerobot's mission is to accelerate the overall process of working with media assets. Uploads happen over a distributed network of uploader nodes in multiple regions to boost upload speeds. Hence an upload of a media assets located in Europe will happen over an EU-based uploader, while an upload in North America will happen over an NA-based uploader. This is what we call a reverse CDN for uploads.

Behind the uploaders, a distributed object storage container infrastructure will replicate data in at least 3 data centers with configurable locations for faster management and delivery during publishing as well compliance with privacy regulations.
