What is Private Cloud Storage?
Private Cloud Storage is a scalable and redundant storage solution where data is stored on remote servers dedicated to a single customer. Because of this, it is considered more secure than public cloud storage solutions where servers are shared across many customer accounts. The servers powering a private cloud storage solution are also flexible since they can be located virtually anywhere – in your office, your company’s data center, or another company’s data center.
What is a Backup?
A backup is a duplicate record of computer or server information stored locally on either your computer or server or at an off-site location or separate device. Backups are typically used to restore lost or corrupted data from the secondary location back to the primary generally in the event of a security breach, hardware failure, or natural disaster.
How to Set Up Plesk Backups in Cloud Object Storage
By default, Plesk typically stores backups on the server. This can, however, present a risk if the hard drive or RAID fails on the server. If this ever occurs, you can possibly lose both data and your backups. To avoid this situation, Liquid Web recommends storing additional backups in a remote storage location.
Using SmartCTL With Linux: A Guide
What is SmartCTL?
Every modern hard drive has an option to monitor its current status and health via SMART attributes. SMART stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology. The SMART test can be performed on your HDD to detect any potential problems with the hardware itself. Tests such as these are run using SmartCTL. According to the Linux man page, SmartCTL is a command-line utility designed to perform SMART tasks. Examples of these tasks would be printing error logs or enabling and disabling automatic SMART testing.

Use Disk Quotas in Dedicated Linux Servers
What is the Role of Disk Space Management using Disk Quotas?
Disk Space Management on a dedicated server or a VPS server is an often underestimated necessity of a systems administrators job duties.
