VPS Addon Options

Local Data Backup Storage

In addition to our virtual image snapshots, we can provide backup storage setup with multiple Raid protected drives to minimise any data loss for your additional backup requirements. An additional 1Gbps ethernet port is connected to your virtual server so that these backups are on a private unmetered connection available via NFS, ISCSI or FTP. Private backups do not incur any additional bandwidth fees. Data contained in this backup storage is not included in our virtual server backup snapshots and not backed up in addition. 

Monthly pricing for the local data backup solution is as follows: 

$20.00 - 200GB Backup Storage Space
$30.00 - 350GB Backup Storage Space
$50.00 - 1000GB Backup Storage Space
$80.00 - 2000GB Backup Storage Space
