Cloudinary

Cloudinary handles pretty much anything you have related to images. From serving them up efficiently to adding transformations on the fly, there's really little this service doesn't do. Their pricing plans allow you to grow into the right levels and their website dashboards are very helpful. I would easily recommend this for all but the simplest of use cases.

SAP Cloud Appliance Library

If you are evaluating SAP products, it is easy to get started with the SAP Cloud Appliance Library. Cost comparisons are provided. On-premise solutions are easily tested by non-IT users. It is simple to use at a low cost. I recommend anyone evaluating SAP products to try it out.

Cons

Cloudinary

  • Their API does require URLs that can get quite lengthy and not always easy to parse on sight.
  • Documentation on how transformations work and what they actually do to your image could be clearer (what does force_strip actually mean?).
  • Although a free tier exists and is quite generous, should you need to acquire a premium plan for your needs the pricing at scale can climb quickly.

Alternatives Considered

Cloudinary

Cloudinary seemed to be the most sophisticated with the most documentation and platform support. Other solutions seemed to be a lot harder to implement, however, due to the good documentation and API samples on their GitHub we were able to implement it nicely. Additionally, they have a lot of really well-known brands using them like Wired, Sky News, and eBay which gave us a lot of confidence that this was a good robust solution to use and to help others with

You could do it yourself, or wait for your hosting provider to provide it, but that takes time.
