Upload Files as large as 30 GB - Can the max limit setting be extended?

Hello, We have a business case where the files to be uploaded (Typically engineering drawings) are as large as 20+ GB.  From a different question on the mendix forum (https://community.mendix.com/link/questions/4791), i learnt that though the max limit by default is set to 5 MB , but it can be changed to a higher value and there are some cloud settings that also can be set to 1 GB by contacting Mendix Support. However, i want to know, if there is a limitation to what size can be set at the web server configuration level or in other words, can it acccommodate 30 GB as the size limit?

Hi Prasanna,

Technically it should be possible.

But I think in that case it would probably be better to use a different solution than a regular file upload. As that would keep a thread open for too long. For example, a widget that directly uploads the large files to S3 or something. Instead of using the web server to forward that to the underlying file storage which could also be S3.
