  • Virtual storage

    Virtual storage extends the data storage capacity of your virtual server using high-performance storage to deliver 99.98% availability. Storage is provided as primary or secondary.

    Primary storage Secondary storage
    Primary storage is provided as pre-defined storage allocations that are directly attached to a virtual server. Primary storage cannot be shared across virtual servers. Primary storage can be purchased in the following tiers: 10 GB, 25 GB, 50 GB, 100 GB, 250 GB, 500 GB. Secondary storage is used to store your templates, ISO images and snapshots (backups of your primary storage). Secondary storage is charged as on a GB-month rate, depending on the level of storage that is used. To reduce costs of secondary storage, information can be deleted which will reduce the amount of storage that is being used and lower the utility costs of the service.
