StorageVault - Cloud Based File and Backup Storage
Here at Web Wiz we find that many of our hosting customers are also looking for online storage space to store precious photos, documents, and files that are not part of their website, but would like these files backed up to our secure cloud based system.
To accommodate these files Web Wiz have our cloud based StorageVault Service exclusively available to our Hosting Customers at no additional cost*.
About The Service
The StorageVault Service gives up to 25,000 MB of online file storage and up to 50,000 MB of data transfer per month on our secure file storage servers*. Our File Storage Servers are equipped with redundant disk systems which means that your files are stored on two disks, if one disk were to fail the other disk would continue without disruption to service or loss of your files.
How it Works
Access to your StorageVault account is via an FTP Client which allows you to upload and download files to our file servers. Web Wiz Host recommend the free FileZilla FTP Client but other FTP Client software is supported.
When you connect via FTP to the service it will inform you how much space you have remaining and allow you to upload and download files to our systems.
Storage Space and Transfer Limits
You have a generous storage space of up to 25,000 MB of storage space to store you precious files and images. Data transfer allowance is up to 50,000 MB per month, 25,000 MB for uploading and another 25,000 MB for downloading*.
File Transfer Compression
Our StorageVault FTP Service supports Mode Z compression allowing files to be compressed by your FTP software while they are transferred to and from our file servers reducing your bandwidth consumption. Typical gains are:
- Text files : ~15−20% of original size
- Html files : ~25−30% of original size
- Media, video, sound : ~90−95% of original size
As well as regular FTP connections to our StorageVault Service you can also use Secure FTP connections using Explicit TLS/SSL. Secure SSL FTP allows data communication between your computer and the StorageVault Service to be encrypted as the data is transferred across the Internet.
For a complete locked down security solution
you are also able to restrict access to the your StorageVault Service by limiting which IP addresses can access your account.
