Backup space for your VPS clients?
With the new central backup pending release for next week a few ideas have been flying around the office. Someone suggested a backup space feature.
The general idea would be FTP (plain/TLS) on a per client basis. You can define the amount of space, transfer speeds and IP's allowed to connect to the space (default to VPS ips) from within SolusVM. This would then allow you to supply the space as a complimentary service with vps or even charge for it as an extra.
Other options could be explored like SFTP and rsync but security would need to be looked into first.
We know some data centers already offer these sort of services to dedicated server customers (OVH etc..) but thought it might be a good idea for the lowend VPS providers who don't want to backup there own customers VPS.
Would you use it?
