External Database Connection on Wix
External databases in Wix
Velo Code Solution
One of the most common Wix platform limitations that we hear from customers is the fear that the 50GB max storage limit for the site will be hit quite quickly. Even though we do very rarely see customers hitting that limit, some customers with lots of photos and video content actually exceed that limit at some point. We offer to expand the limits and connect an external database to your Wix site to have advanced media capabilities.
Wix database connection
The most obvious solution is integrating an external database to Wix (most often one of AWS / GCP / Azure). This is also mandatory when the site process data synchronously with mobile apps / other sites. The way integration works is that you still see the database as normal in the Wix content manager, but all content/information stored there is actually located outside of the Wix site.
Scenarios of use:
Have a few sites content synchronised.
Mobile apps that should record customer actions (not just display information).
50GB site limit is not enough.
When having PDF generation feature on the site.
When storing files in formats that Wix refuses to accept (e.g. 3d models).
