The disk space feature shows the full volume of info that you can have on the cloud hosting server at one time. With a desktop computer, for instance, this is the total size of a single hdd or the total size of all hard disks in case that the PC has more than just a single one. The same way that the space on a home machine is divided between installed software, docs, your music etc, the server hdd space is shared between website files, databases and email messages. Each file, folder and email uses some disk space on your server, therefore you should take into consideration a number of factors, not just the size of the files which you upload. For instance, getting large email attachments or having a script-driven website where the user-generated info is saved in a database also affects the space you use.
Disk Space in Cloud Hosting
We have designed our Linux cloud hosting packages with the notion that the hdd storage shouldn't be a setback for your sites. While many web hosting suppliers generate accounts using one server, and as a matter of fact, the most widespread Control Panels were made to run solely on this type of platform, we've used a completely different solution. We have clusters of servers that manage every part of the web hosting service, so your files will be stored on one cluster, the emails on another one,the databases on a third one, and so on. With this cloud platform we accomplish a couple of things - the disk space is actually endless as we can easily attach as many servers and hard disks to our clusters as needed, and we improve the overall efficiency of every machine since only one kind of processes will operate on it. This tailor-made setup will allow you to enhance your web sites as you see fit without worrying about not having enough hard drive storage.
