Asset Services

The asset services system provides for the management of versioned file, binary data and text assets as well as the localization of those assets. Individual assets are identified with a unique name (or key) and a particular version that maps to a set of localized files or text based upon IETF BCP 47 region codes. The system primarily manages metadata as is not directly intended as a storage system. The system is designed to work with both local and remote file storage systems in order to provide a simple solution for the total management of assets. As a result, as a developer you can deploy this service into a cluster and upload any number of asset files desired and it will be stored on the configured storage device. You can also use the system as purely a metadata manager and only create asset resources that link to another storage medium (e.g. physical disc).
