If anyone knows a service similar to Hetzner's StorageBox, but based in the #USA, please let me know.
basically, I need a few TiB of space accessible via SFTP/WebDAV/NFS/CIFS/whatever that does not cost too much and preferably has no costs per GiB downloaded down the line.
@rysiek Every year or so I get curious and look at the hosting industry, and there's very little in the cheap-terabytes category. Hetzner and online.net are the two I've seen, and neither is in the US. Oh, there's this: http://oneprovider.com/dedicated-servers/dedicated-server-promotions (click on North America). Of course, then you'd have to install some software. Maybe nextcloud.
@sandhawke thanks, will have a look!
@rysiek Can you access StorageBox with SSH/rsync or is it just SFTP?
@flowfx just SFTP.
@rysiek ok. Thanks.
@rysiek, I would probably rent a physical server from a reliable hosting company in the US (since you need it based there), and set up whatever file serving services you need on it. A few terabytes of storage is a lot, and renting a single dedicated machine is probably the cheapest way to get that.
