Technical setup

Each Storage Monster can be configured to your needs. For typical setups we suggest:

  • Small, RAID-1 (mirrored) volume for simple OS installation
  • Storage drives combined into a single unit using RAID-6
  • Storage volume formatted with LVM (so you can easily partition, and repartition)

We can set up the drives up in other ways but we think this strikes a good balance between a reliably-booting system, safe data and high storage capacity.

Ideal for Big Data

  • Store and query large datasets
  • Offer public access or lock it down to your private access list
  • Use any combination of database technology — we’ll help advise on how to set it up

Great for large data archives

  • Keep your backups or archives stored securely
  • Our data centre is monitored 24/7
  • Your server will report any disk faults so we can take proactive action
  • Redundant disk arrays (RAID) help keep your data safe

Fair pricing

Our prices for hosting are transparent — we quote only from list prices and don’t offer “used car salesmen” discretionary discounts. Our staff have no sales targets and we pay no commission. However, we do respect long-term commitment and can offer a fair reduction for 2-3 year contracts.
