The term "disk space" may also be called "disk quota" or "data storage", yet all these terms refer to exactly the same thing - the volume of info that you'll be able to upload to a cloud hosting account. The overall size of everything you have is estimated by accumulating the space taken by the entire content in your account, the most apparent being the data files you upload. Two more things are sometimes forgotten by many people, though - e-mail messages as well as databases. Big attachments and databases of large script-driven sites can often require a lot of storage space as well. To employ a more common analogy, the hard disk space of your computer is taken not only by files that you download, but additionally by documents you write together with software programs you add. Similarly, many things are counted in the hdd space that your content uses on a web hosting server, in addition to the uploads.
Disk Space in Cloud Hosting
We have developed our Linux cloud hosting with the idea that the disk space won't be a setback for your web sites. While many web hosting companies set up accounts using a single server, and in fact, the most common Control Panels were made to operate solely on such a platform, we have applied a completely different strategy. We have groups of servers that take care of every element of the website hosting service, so that your files will be stored on one cluster, your email on another,the databases on a third one, etc. Through this cloud platform we achieve two things - the storage space is actually infinite considering that we can easily attach as many servers and hard drives to our clusters as needed, and we improve the performance of each and every machine because just a single type of processes will operate on it. This custom-built setup will help you enlarge your websites as you see fit without worrying about not having enough hard drive storage.
