Hello guys,
I am going to buy a cloud server with minimum price and buy extra HDD disk to add to it and using them as a cloud storage. Is that a good idea?
I checked Google cloud storage or Amazon cloud storage but seem their price are very high. Needing your suggestions.

Do you know how much cloud storage you will be needing?

What are you storing and how fast do access speeds need to be. You might find that object storage (e.g. S3 compatible) will be a more cost efficient solution.

It really depends on your needs.

- Will you make a backup yourself?
- Who will do a server administration?
- How much data will be downloaded monthly?
- Where from should the data be available ? Speed?

You can check Rabata .io for example, it's cheaper then Amazon, but almost as good.

most companies can create a cloud instance like openstack, cloudstack, opennebula etc. And easily add SAS or NFS mounts over secure network to your cloud server. shouldnt cost the earth for 2TB
