How to manage assets on VFS (Virtual File System)

Due to cloud based solution, Google's App Engine provides a read only FileSystem. So to store static assets (like images/CSS/JS/other files) it requires you to bundle and deploy files along with application. Also there is limitation of maximum files can be bundled with application.

To overcome this limitation and provide unlimited scalability, cloudCMS includes a VFS (Virtual File System) built on top App Engine's datastore. cloudCMS's SiteManager tool includes a full-featured File-Manager interface to manage files on VFS system.


Only Application Administrator can perform folders and files operation on VFS. A "public" folder can be defined on VFS where public users can upload there content (see Configuration "publicVFSPaths").
