SoftLayer offers Network Attached Storage (NAS) as one of our basic storage solutions for users looking for quick, cost-efficient backup for their SoftLayer devices. NAS is compatible with each of our offered operating systems and may also be used via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) with both Parallels Plesk Panel and cPanel&WHM. NAS and FTP storage is billed monthly to users and is available in a variety of storage sizes. Users interact with their NAS and FTP storage primarily within the command line or terminal within the OS or through point-and-click interaction for control panels. Within the Customer Portal, NAS details and usage can be used, but the service itself may not be manipulated outside of the command line, kernel or control panel.
