Hello there,

Do you provide NFS service which can be mounted directly (without a proxy server), i.e NFS-As-A-Service?

Hello,

You can follow this article in order to setup NFS mount:

Alternative is using sshfs: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-sshfs-to-mount-remote-file-systems-over-ssh

If performance is an issue, consider SSHFS. It’s slightly slower than unencrypted NFS traffic, but usually much faster than tunnelled NFS.

Luckily there is a way to mount your VPS file system to your local computer so you can make changes on the fly and treat your droplet as local storage.
