Smart Storage: the secure, Italian storage for online backup accessible via FTP, FTPS, Rsync, S3 and others

Smart Storage services provide online storage space on Enterprise Storage Area Network (SAN), specifically designed for storing static content, typically large files or periodic backups for which you wish to maintain a history.

In particular, the Smart Storage service stores files in one of Hosting Solutions' two Data Centers (Florence or Rome) while the Smart Storage Plus service stores files in both Data Centers (Florence and Rome).

The service includes various storage sizes, from 50 GB up to 1 TB, which can be dynamically expanded thanks to specific additional services.


Multi-protocol accessibility from Hosting Solutions' public and private network, for any device (pc, tablet, smartphone - guides available in the section Guides - OnLine Storage).
In particular, accessibility from the public network is guaranteed using the protocols:

  • FTP, WebFTP, FTPS, using applications such as FileZilla (Linux, Windows, Mac OS X), AndFTP (Android), FTPManager (iOS), etc
  • Rsync, using the rsync command from Linux O.S. and the DeltaCopy application from Windows
  • S3, using applications such as Dragon Disk (for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X), S3Anyware (Android), or by building your own applications using the appropriate programming interfaces: see S3 API for php and Java guides

From Hosting Solutions' private network (e.g. from a dedicated server or from a VPS server at Hosting Solutions), accessibility is guaranteed using the well-known protocols:

  • NFS
  • SMB

Hosting Solutions' storage services are flexible: you can use the storage as a single user or divide the purchased package among several users, to whom you can assign permissions in different ways (read only, write only, read and write).

Hosting Solutions' storage services are also suitable for resale and can be activated via API.
