is it possible to create pyramid from large rasters and add them with folders to google drive and mount google drive as local drive to geoserver ? i tried to search in internet to find about it and found syncdrive and grive for linux.Can these tools be used in linux servers(like centos,fedora,...)? geoserver rest api has this capability to read raster pyramids from google drive?

    I wonder if this brand new Amazon S3 BlobStore could suit you docs.geoserver.org/latest/en/user/community/gwc-s3/index.html.

  • geoserver limits to this choice?we can not use other cloud hosts for geoserver? Aug 12, 2015 at 10:41
  • S3 BlobStore is a community module. Someone needed to use S3 and wrote a module for that and decided kindly to publish it for others as open source but it is not maintained by the GeoServer project. I believe that the only blob store that is officially supported for GeoWebCache is to use local disk.

  • so it is geoserver deficiency and we must write appropraite plugin? Aug 12, 2015 at 11:07
  • In GeoServer the tiling stuff is handled by an integrated GeoWebCache so I would ask the GeoWebCache developers first. They for sure know if Google drive can already be used with some undocumented way and also guide you if you need to write your own plugin.
