Plugins often need the ability to read and write files. Thanks to the Flysystem that Shopware uses, this can be managed very easily. It does not matter whether the files are stored on the local file system or at a cloud provider. The read and write access remains the same. If you want to learn more about the configuration of the file system in Shopware, have a look at the filesystem guide. For example, you will learn how to outsource the file system to the Amazon cloud. In a plugin, we don't have to worry about the configuration and can use the advantages of the Flysystem directly.
