Remote mounting storage VPS
I've been following the forum for a while and even nibbling on some offers here and there. So, after BF / CF crazy threads I decided to register and try and contribute whenever I can offer my help.
Now to my question. I was running Nextcloud on a ZXHost CEPH VM and unfortunately due to the problems everyone is aware I need to move to a new server. I snatched UltraVPS 2TB deal and also I couldn't resist netcup's 8cpu/8GB offer (the 8am deal!). I've also pre-ordered the VirMach 1TB offer.
Given netcup's vm performance I was thinking on installing Nextcloud on this server and mounting UltraVPS 2TB server as storage. I'd then use 1TB for Nextcloud and 1TB for personal backup. The Nextcloud files would then be backed up on VirMach 1TB vm.
Despite the need for a large storage, the Nextcloud server will be used mostly by 2 users and I don't expect a lot of traffic. I tested the connection between nectup (FRA) and Ultra VPS (NL) and it seems reasonable with a 10ms ping.
My key concern is how to safely and reliably mount the storage on nectup's vm? I read that SSHFS performance would be poor, so I;m leaning towards NFS over a SSH tunnel.
I would appreciate your thoughts and experiences with a similar solution.
