Setting a Storage Limit for Individual DigitalOcean Spaces (S3)

DjangoStorageCDNDigitalOcean Spaces

I plan on having multiple Django (Wagtail) apps on my DigitalOcean stack each handling hundreds of large images (media files in general). Normally, I use the default Django media storage settings which stores all of it on the disk of the DO Droplet inside the project directory, but I want to dip my toes into implementing S3 with DO Spaces.

DO Spaces offers 250GB shared between the amount of Spaces instances you create and also offers a CDN which seems quite easy to set up (at least on DO’s side).

I am concerned that my Django projects may eat up a lot of this storage allocation, therefore I want to be able to limit each of my Django apps to only use a maximum of 25GB. I will create a management command which will delete old media files and will be run by the DO Droplet as a cron job.

Is there a way to limit the maximum storage limit for one “space”?

Is there a way to set the maximum storage limit for each Django project with django-storages?

What is the best way to achieve this?

Hey @sidharths16,

I believe that this is not currently possible to set such limits but it sounds like a great idea.

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!
