Uploading Data to your Virtual Data Centre
This article will explain one way you can upload data to your Virtual Data Centre.
So, you've set up your shiny new Virtual Network and you're just about ready to deploy your application or set up your cloud servers. The only problem now is getting your data up to the cloud. It could take days or weeks running through your ADSL connection to upload a few hundred gigabytes to your network. Fortunately iiNet have the solution for you.
iiNet Data Upload allows you to send us your data on an external storage device, and we will take care of the transfer for you. This means no long waits for huge data transfers, and no strain on your ADSL connection running full bore for weeks at a time. Once we've uploaded your data to your Business Cloud network, you will be able to start using it immediately, and we will send the device back to you. iiNet Data Upload is the affordable and time-saving way to move large quantities of data from your local network to your cloud without any hassle.
