Service WEDOS Disc and its use

WEDOS Disc renting disc space on our servers for private files saving.

Disk space is intended for personal use of the customer only. It may not be used for public storage, sharing and downloading files. the Customer is especially forbidden to provide public access to the disc space or links to files in the disc space.

Usually using the service WEDOS Disk:

  • backup of personal or company data
  • servers backup
  • archive documents, videos, photos and any other files
  • sharing a common disk space with family, friends, colleagues at work place etc.

Comparison to competitive products

There are many other services for data storage, such as Microsoft Skydrive, Google Drive, DropBox, etc. - this are services offering "inteligent" workspace, versioning, taking notes, document sharing, data synchronization between multiple computers and networking with social networks. They have access to files through a web browser, and then you can install in your PC their program that will synchronize. Usually they have several GB free, additional space is significantly more expensive than our.

We offer something different:

  • We offer "plain" the disk space - this is more focused on backup, no sharing and synchronization between multiple PCs. Data synchronization is possible through a variety of applications that exist for this purpose.
  • We are using standard file protocols(currently SMB, rsync and FTP and more(in the near future). You are not bound to any of our particular applications, you can use any program or utility that can be compatible with some of these protocols. You can easily automate backups with the help of some script.
  • We are focused on large volumes of data. The paid versions start at 30 gigabytes and ends in multiples of TB (also dozens TB), which is not on offer by these other companies for their lack of having the capacity for it. - So we hope that the big companies can use us to back up their large volumes of data. Our prices converted to 1 GB are significantly lower than other offers.

Servers and storage array FUJITSU & Datacenter WEDOS

The service is provided on servers and storage arrays FUJITSU in our own Datacenter WEDOS.

Data are placed on the array Fujitsu DX80, HDD Nearline SAS 3 TB 7.2k are in RAID 50 (+ 2 hot spare HDD). The usable capacity of array is 270 TB.

Disc space for data

The size of disc space to store data corresponds to the selected option. Our customers with web hosting and VPS can use 5, or 10 GB space for free. You can choose the size of paid space according to the actual offer from a few dozens GB to multiple TB. So it is only depends on your need.

Disc space has a fixed size and a fixed maximum number of files according to the selected service. This space, has the number of files containing everything that the customer placed into the disc space, including any additional data and files that are required to operate the service. If the total space or maximum number of files is exhausted, the customer is not allowed to upload additional files.

Amount of transferred data (traffic)

We do not measure or put a limit on the amount of transferred data in both directions .

Transfer rate (upload/download)

We do not limit the transfer rate. Speed ​​is shared for all users. You do not have to worry about any overloads, because our network is connected to the optical backbone speed of 10 Gbps.

The maximum file size

We have decided not to limit the maximum (or minimum) size of the files. It just depends on what you need. It is perfectly right with us when you record a single large file (for example, an archive that contains a backup of your data), or create a virtual file system (you can encrypt your data)..

Maximum number of files

The only major limitation is the number of files that you can upload to the server. The reason is to avoid (accidental or intentional)overloading of our filesystem disk array. A large number of (small) files (for example, in one directory) can significantly slow down the whole storage array. Such slowdown will affect all users. It is perfect with us when you record a single large file (for example, an archive that contains a backup of your data), or create a virtual file system (you can encrypt your data).

Disc space has a fixed size and a fixed maximum number of files according to the selected service. This space, has the number of files containing everything that the customer placed into the disc space, including any additional data and files that are required to operate the service. If the total space or maximum number of files is exhausted, the customer is not allowed to upload additional files.

.

Number of user accounts for one service

Disk space is limited to user accounts (only one in basic versions).

Number of user accounts for one service is determined by the current offer of services. When establishing service you will automatically get one account and then you can set up another user accounts in the administration (with their own username and password) and assign these accounts access to the appropriate subdirectory (or to all data).

FTP access

One of the ways to access the stored data isFTP protocol, you can also use an encrypted version FTPES.

More in knowledge base: WEDOS Disk - via FTP.

SMB (can be connected as a network drive)

Protocol SMB/CIFS (Samba) is another access option. This protocol allows you the connection to our service as a network disk on your computer and you will have in your computer an additional separated disc (eg. E:). It can be connected to the Windows and Linux.

More in knowledge base: WEDOS Disk - via SMB/CIFS.

rsync (for synchronization)

This service allows access by using rsync for easy synchronization of files - in a graphical client and command line program(easy automation of backup scripts).

More in knowledge base: WEDOS Disk - via rsync.

WebFTP (access via web interface)

Access to the service is possible via WebFTP interface, working with files through your browser without having to install and use any additional software.

NFS access

NFS (Network File System) coming soon.

WebDAV

WebDAV access coming soon. WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) is a set of extensions HTTP protocol, which provides the possibility of co-operation and remote management of files stored on a web server.

Downloading each files via HTTPS

In the administration(in the future) it will be possible to generate a one-time URL link that lets you download a specific file for a limited time and a limited number of downloads without having to login.

Files on disk space are not otherwise accessible via HTTP protocol (can not be used as a public web server).

Data stored in the Czech Republic (legislatively in order)

Do you have your data stored in accordance with the legislation? Do you want to have backups in accordance with the law? If you are processing any personal data(even data about customers), it is necessary to comply with legislation, relative to the protection of personal data. The basis for this is that, data can be processed and stored (and backed up)only in countries which are in the European Union. These data need to be recognised, by the European commission, as compatible, with respect to the protection of personal data. It should be also noted that, if you have personal data out of CR or backing up out of the Czech Republic, it is necessary to comply with the legislation of that particular country. So if you use our hosting and(or) you will backup your data with us, it could be enough, because,if you meets the legal requirements applicable in the Czech Republic, the data we store remain all the time in the Czech Republic. This fact is still ignored by customers despite the high risk of fines. Everything is based on the directive of the European Parliament and of the Council 95/46/EC.

Much stricter regulations on data protection in the area of ​​data protection are in the energy, banking, insurance, and such advocacy or notaries. If you have questions please contact us.

Data backup in another disk array

Data are stored on professional FUJITSU disk arrays which are configured for the security of your data in a RAID 50 (+ 2 hot spare disks).

In the basic version of the service data is regarded as backup data, and therefore they are no longer backed up. It is possible (in the case of important data, even appropriate or necessary) to order optional service that automatically ensures regular backups of all data stored on a different disk array, which is located in the same area. However, physically this is a different device, so in case of an accident on the primary disk array data will not be lost. This service is coming soon.

Geographically separated backups

For critical data, data can be backed up to another disk array, which is located in a different data center, in a completely different location. Thanks to this your data will not be lost in case of a natural disaster (fire, earthquake, explosion, etc.), which could destroy the primary data center. This service coming is soon.

Data encryption filesystem

Data are not encrypted by us. If customer wants to store sensitive data, it is recommended to encrypt disk space before transfer

Stored data is not automatically encrypted by us in any way, but there are a few ways to ensure security (to protect the private content )of data. Data can be encrypted locally and uploaded as encrypted copy to us or you can establish encrypted virtual filesystem, where everything is done automatically in the background on your computer (TrueCrypt for example).

Restrict access to individual IP

Access to data and the various protocols can be restricted to individual IP addresses directly in the administration of services. This will give you greater security of stored data. This service is in process.

On-line administration via the customer center

All settings can be performed nonstop and direct online at customer administration.

The Disk WEDOS services can be performed in the customer:
