Storage should never be a limiting factor. GoGrid Cloud Storage is mountable network-attached storage (NAS) that provides instantly scalable and reliable file-level backup service for Windows and Linux Cloud Servers running in the GoGrid cloud.
- Easy to Use
Cloud Storage is available on-demand and is instantly scalable. Provisioning takes just a few clicks through our web-based management console. Supported protocols: SCP, SAMBA/CIFS, and RSYNC.
- Simple Pricing
The first 10 GB of stored data per month are free. After that charges accrue per GB stored. And we don’t charge for private network data transfer to and from your Cloud Servers to Cloud Storage.
- Free 24x7 Support and Strong SLAs
GoGrid provides access to our knowledgeable Support team 24 hours per day, 7 days per week by phone, email, or chat.
Billing for Cloud Storage begins after you exceed the initial free 10 GB storage quota. Each additional stored GB is charged monthly according to the tiers below.
|10 GB – 1 TB||$0.12 per GB|
|1 TB – 50 TB||$0.11 per GB|
|50 TB – 500 TB||$0.10 per GB|
|500 TB – 1,000 TB||$0.09 per GB|
|More than 1,000 TB||$0.08 per GB|
Included in the above pricing:
- – Free private network data transfer on your private VLAN within a single data center, so you can transfer files from cloud storage to a server at no charge.
- – Free 24x7 Support
GoGrid’s Cloud Storage is a high-performance, general-purpose, file-based storage system scalable to hundreds of terabytes of data. Our Cloud Storage is ideal for custom applications or package applications that run in a clustered architecture yet need common access for writing or retrieving files using familiar file access constructs natively available to modern operating systems (NFS, SMB/CIFS, FTP, SFTP).
Typical Use Cases:
- 1. Clustered Application File Sharing
Many applications must run in a clustered configuration that provides for load balancing, fault tolerance, and horizontal scaling, yet need common/shared access to a file repository. An example of this use case is a mobile app service used by hundreds of thousands of mobile devices that connect to a balanced pool of application servers that all serve a common set of image or data files.
- 2. Log Data Storage & Retention
Application log data and/or syslog data can accumulate quickly on client machines whether they’re virtual or physical, so most administrators must implement a policy to manage that data. Many organizations also require log data management and retention policies to ensure security audit compliance, provide support for general informational analysis, and retain information for debugging. An example of this use case is a small eCommerce merchant that must transfer and retain syslog data pertaining to its credit card system processing.
- 3. File Backup & Retention
Application or database servers that use local attached storage will always need a location for targeting local file system backups. Cloud Storage is intended to be used as the target location for backup services.
- 4. High-Volume File Output
Applications designed for high efficiency and simple file-level unstructured data output can mount and use Cloud Storage as the repository for accumulating those output files and then making them available in bulk for re-retrieval and analysis. An example of this use case would be a web service that writes an individual log-event file for every call to the web service. This setup allows for efficient file output and makes the aggregate data subsequently available for analysis or for loading and analysis using map/reduce functionality.
