If your application requires an custom file integration like uploading an in-Stream created file and letting users to download them, or periodically uploading saved project/game files to a cloud storage you can do this with Vagon Streams as well.

Because Vagon Streams machines have a public internet connection inside, you can upload created files to AWS (or other CSPs), get a download link for the uploaded files and then open this link in a new tab with our Unreal Engine / Unity SDKs to initiate the download.
