Are there other storage solutions?

Hey, I was looking to move to DigitalOcean for my hosting needs with your 1GB mem/30Gb storage. The memory is plenty but I need some more storage room to allow for some offsite backs I'm currently doing with AWS. It doesn't require SSD, but I would need it backed up. Is there any options for this? Thanks.

If storage is what you need create 512MB droplets and mount them using NFS. It provides more value for money.

1GB server 30GB > upgraded > 2GB server 40GB = 40GB total disk space for $20
1GB server 30GB + (2 x 512MB server 20GB) = 70GB space for $20 :-)
You can mount Amazon S3 if that is ok for your usage?
Currently we do not offer additional/extended hard drive space. In order to get a bigger drive you will need to upgrade to a bigger droplet plan.
