How to use your Backup Storage
File transfers are simple: log in to your backup server using the protocol of your choice and then add the data to be backed up. For security purposes, you can only connect to your account via your So you Start server.
The protocols supported on your backup space
So you Start servers are backed up by the expertise and innovation of OVH, the only hosting provider on the market to support these protocols:
- - FTP
- - FTPS
- - NFS/CIFS (optional £1.69 ex. VAT/month (or £2.03 incl. VAT))
A look at the NFS/CIFS protocols
Using the NFS and CIFS protocols, you can create your backup space locally on your own server. So what's the benefit? Being able to access and manage your data as you would if it were stored locally, so your backups can thus be carried out using your admin tools.
