Any storage VPS with user accessible snapshots?

Wondering if any storage VPS provider provides user-accessible snapshots of the VPS? Or is this simply too costly to provide?

    storage VPS + snapshots. I don't think even cociu would be crazy enough to do that!

  • NetCup does.. but you need to make them yourself, and downloading them costs roughly €1 every time you want a local copy.

    I won't be back until @bsdguy is released.

    How much are you willing to pay per snapshot? This might be something I'd be willing to add to our Storage VPS plans but you're essentially asking for double the disk space so expect to pay for it.

  • Lunanode has nice snapshot setup. Mountable drives are $0.03 / GB per month - I think offline snapshots beyond the first 20 GB compressed are billed at same rate - so could make sense for modest amount of storage, say up to a few hundred GB. It's a flexible system with hourly billing, and one of the most user-friendly snapshot systems I've found.

  • Thanks everyone.

    I would be willing to pay about 20-25% premium over the base price.

    So you'd pay an additional 25% for 200% more storage? :(

    There's a FSCK joke in here somewhere.

    Was told that it is still part of your quota and not a separate free snapshot.

    no , according to its website , storage line doesn't have snapshot

  • What do you wan't to use the snapshots for?

    If you're talking about important data, storage isn't that expensive these days. If you're talking about stuff you'd download at any time again, I would not hold any backup of it.

    They're not automatic, but you can still create your own within CCP. The only thing I dislike about how NetCup handles its' KVMs- it shuts down the service and takes a snapshot of the entire filesystem.

    I won't be back until @bsdguy is released.

    Well, this is THE best snapshot I have ever come across, I have no yet seen any provider with better snapshot than netcup.

    @codevine @beagle @caracal If you look at our vServer page and under "Service", you'll see "Snapshots". https://www.hetzner.com/virtual-server Depending on which vServer, you have, you can have between 1-6 snapshots included in the price. --Katie, Marketing

    for their storage line there is no manual snapshot allowed...

    you can buy backups aka exports for snapshots at 1,50€ as @WSS mentioned. I did not use that feature so far... but afaik that really is a one time thing for one snapshot to be taken and downloaded, nothing permanent.

    I could buy this on the storage line, yet I most likely can't use it, as I can't do a snapshot in the first place... maybe I need to try for once.

    The first download is included, AFAIK. Also, uploading stuff to their system via FTP is not what I'd consider very secure, but it works just fine for throwing random ISOs around. I'd want something a little more secure for reimaging, however.

    I won't be back until @bsdguy is released.
