Cloud Storage

New Linux-friendly Cloud File Storage
- designed for Linux users

Cloud storage is often very complicated, and not suited to traditional Unix/Linux tools. That's why we've created the ElasticHosts Cloud Storage platform.
No hidden fees, non-standard tools, or complicated APIs to learn. It's easy.

Technical Details

  • Full Linux filesystem semantics: maintain users/groups, permissions, etc.
  • rsync: synchronise files and incremental updates directly into cloud storage.
  • sshfs: mount remote drives over SSH for simple local use.
  • WebDAV: mount remote drives over HTTPS for simple local use.
  • HTTP: serve files such as static web pages or downloads.
  • Cloud Server integration: Run auto-scaling Linux Containers with your storage as their filesystem, mount your storage on Virtual Machines.
  • HDD and SSD: The disk-backed Cloud Storage, available only in London Maidenhead and Dallas, have their own separate folder pool which offer reduced I/O contention risks. The SSD-backed Cloud Storage (aka Folders) are available in every location.
