Big day for me today, after months of work, we at Delicious Brains released WP Offload Media 2.0, our plugin for offloading your WordPress Media Library to cloud storage.

It used to be called WP Offload S3 as it worked exclusively with Amazon S3, but now that we’ve added support for offloading your WordPress Media Library to DigitalOcean Spaces too, seemed like a great time to change the name!

I made a lot of changes to the internals of WP Offload Media in preparation for this release, previously the plugin was scattered with S3 specific code, now it’s much more adaptable to alternate storage providers. In fact it should be a lot easier to work in a different SDK than the AWS PHP SDK that we’re currently using for both Amazon S3 and DigitalOcean Spaces, you know, should we decide to add something like Google Cloud Storage support via the Google Cloud Client Library for PHP.
