Would that satisfy your needs ?
Thanks for the suggestion Lennie.
probably would do it..
As a small biz, perhaps more expensive and overpowered for my needs.
I've solved my issue, for now, with simple web hosting, for images only, using rsync to synchronize with my local site. Offloading the images will work for a few months, given my loads.... and then I can use the cdn to pull those images via origin pull from their faster servers when I need to upgrade again. (adding one level of complexity and synching... but hey, you do what you gotta do :-)
For now problem solved... although not without much waste of time testing and fine-tuning. as they say, the "devil's in the details"...
I was truly surprised that rsync up to PUSH zone would not work for a live site. Lesson learnt.
Thanks for everyone questions and suggestions. Learnt a lot here these past few days.
