Hosting / deploy advice with heavy media

I’m working on a project that has a lot of media, photographs and video. It will eventually grow to be fairly large in terms of file size, especially generating a lot of image sizes to serve.

I did a bit of digging, but came up short on any clear answers.

I don’t see anything in the docs, maybe I’m not searching for the right thing.

That is fairly straightforward, but not really a part of Hugo. The easiest setup is probably Cloudinary.

Here is a guide using Forestry:

Thanks, I’ll take a look.
