The External Storage Feature enables users to mount storage space at other providers safely and quickly. It is actually a bunch of features supporting different storage providers:  Amazon S3, Dropbox, Microsoft SharePoint and Google Drive as well as Windows Network Drives, SMB and FTP.

You can choose to restrict external file storage to administrators or to allow users to mount their own external file storage in their accounts.

The feature helps create a single point of access, allowing for organization-specific security policies to be used across all storage without the need of tedious data migration.
