Please recommend a space mounting service/method

February 10, 2015 1.2k views

I want to mount more space on my droplet, both for reasons of being bigger than just 640GB and for the normal market space cost (not $1 per GB).

I don’t mean backup, but the actual mounted space. I want simple/reliable, ubuntu.

I’ve considered Rackspace, looks good, wanna ask first.

Amazon S3 has at least two GitHub tools for this, but they are reportedly buggy. Is it true? Is one best?

Do any of you smart guys out there have recommendations for providers and methods?

I know this is an old one, but I just wanted to point out for anyone who might stumble on this that DigitalOcean is now offering mountable block storage. As I write this, it is still in beta. If you’re interested in participating in the beta or you just want to learn more, you can sign up right here.
