I have created a Raspberry Pi CNC board/hat and I have an image with a pre-configured setup for it. I tried sharing it on Drop box but they have now suspended my share due to to much traffic. Is there a place where I can host a 4gb file that will deal with traffic and size like this?
I am not familiar with free image hosting services. However, if paying for bandwidth is not an issue, you can look into Amazon S3, which will run up to $0.09/GB (costs go down as data transfer goes up, see attached image from the AWS pricing page).
You can also look into hosting a web server at digital ocean for $5/mo and that gives you 1TB of data transfer and additional bandwidth for $0.02/GB, which is more than twice better than AWS's best pricing.
Going Digital Ocean, you'd have to install a webserver such as nginx, and there are instructions for doing that on Digital Ocean's page. Once you have it installed, upload your file to the server and you're good to go.
Hope this helps!
First of all, you can compress it under 1 GiB using compression tools like
Here is a reference.
Alternative could be any other file sharing site. Try
Google Drive or something similar such as
Mediafire and numerous others, but I heard that they are having the same restrictions as Dropbox imposes unless you're a premium user.
I'm not sure if there is a file size limit on
Github and you can upload about an 1 GiB file on it but worth a try.
Hope it helps.
