Let's say we're up to 224,334 images in the thumbs folder. That's a lot of files for a single folder. This will cause problems with FTP software and any type of directory browsing. This is not that big of a deal actually since the image files will be added & deleted via nopcommerce.
We'll also be using MaxCDN and they've confirmed that all those images in a single folder is no problem. Arvixe hosting should be fine with this since the images will be served from a CDN.
Does this all sound like a good strategy?
That's not a problem at all. We have a site which has 10 times images of yours. And there we're also using MaxCDN as a CDN provider. We used this plugin for integrating cdn
. And this other plugin
too which helped us scale our site very well without changing a single line of code. Now its working very cool.
