Storage Server and VPS

JJussiJJussi Member
Hello!

Q1:
If I order just storage server (1TB), can I connect to it from outside and use it as storage? If possible, what are ways to connect it (VPN, NFS,...)
Q1.1:
Is it possible later change storage size to bigger (1,5 - 2TB) "on the fly"?

Q2:
If I have VPS what have only 0,5TB bandwidth and storage with multiple TB of bandwidth. Is that useable?

    Yeah, but I don't think any of the Time4VPS servers support FUSE, so if you are connecting from a client on a T4VPS server you'll have trouble.

    You can use options like an NFS userspace server, SSHFS, or a million other filesystems with a FUSE frontend if you client supports FUSE. If not, you may have to get creative and use something like minio to make DIY S3 storage or an HTTPserver you can proxy requests to to use it as a backend.

    As for me, right now I'm using both SFTP and a combination of a private bittorrent server+client to move archives between my time4vps storage server and other clients

    Yeah, you can 'upgrade' it in the customer service panel

    If you are asking if internal bandwidth between time4VPS services is free/not counted, the answer is no

    https://billing.time4vps.eu/knowledgebase/article/60/does-bandwidth-used-in-between-vpss-count-/

    Very few VPS companies have the whole intra-VPS-accounting thing set up that way
