File Storage

Full-featured file storage.

Connect your bare metal and virtual servers to durable, fast, and flexible NFS-based file storage. In this Network Attached Storage (NAS) environment, you have total control over your file shares function and perform.

Create file shares with your desired capacity—from 20GB to 12TB—and choose whether you want those file shares to be provisioned with the flexibility of Endurance or the raw power of Performance.

Durable: Our file storage protects the integrity of the data and maintains availability through maintenance events and unplanned failures.

Allocated IOPS: Shares are provisioned with customizable allocated levels of IOPS to meet your workload’s unique storage needs.

Highly Available Connectivity: File storage shares are exposed to authorized devices over routed TCP/IP connections for resiliency.

Snapshots & Replications (Endurance only): Efficient, point-in-time snapshots that are captured non-disruptively and engineered to minimize space. Snapshots can be replicated to select SoftLayer data centers.

Global Footprint: File shares can be provisioned alongside your cloud servers in SoftLayer data center locations around the world.

File Storage 101

Is file storage right for you?

File storage is an NFS-based storage solution provisioned in formatted file shares on a networked storage device and deployed in NAS environment. File-level storage is easy to use and is readily compatible with most popular operating systems. As the name suggests, file-level storage is designed to support the storing and retrieving of massive amounts of files.

HOSTED VoIP SERVER file storage shares provide enterprise-grade data performance and durability, standard. The service is built on an industry-leading storage architecture that seamlessly fuses solid-state drives—ideal for computing operations that need higher input/output operations per second (IOPS)—with enterprise-grade spinning disks—allowing near-limitless scalability while minimizing costs. Your file storage is hosted in the same data center as your ARN Server virtual and bare metal servers and shares can be replicated to other ARN Server data centers over our private network.
