Share Size Options
Shares are offered in various sizes (150 GB and multiples of 500 GB), as defined on the Fees and Billing page. Snapshot usage reduces the visible capacity by 20%, but enables end-users to restore changed/deleted data.
How big can a share be?
Shares can be grown from 150 GB to 500 GB, to any multiple of 500 GB. The “maximum size” is really dependent upon our available disk capacity, and your budget.
Growth past 45 TB requires discussion. Contact us via email@example.com to start the conversation.
