Disk Space

When comparing disk space limits purchased at LuxSci vs. other providers, please keep in mind:

Many providers give you a specific amount of space "per user".

  • Most users will use far less than their disk space limit; only a few power users will, in general, approach the limit
  • If a user reaches his/her limit, that limit is hard and that user's services will be interrupted!
  • There is generally no way to increase individual user limits! So, if the limit is 10 GB/user and you need 12 GB, you are completely out of luck.
  • These limits are not sharable among the account, i.e. 10 users with 10 GB/user does not give you 100 GB to distribute freely across all users.

At LuxSci, we do not impose per-user disk space limits. (Though as an admin, you can)

  • Disk space is account wide and shared by all users and services
  • Each individual user can use as much disk space as needed and will not be cut off.
  • If the account-wide usage exceeds the purchased limit, you are merely charged for the extra space -- no services are interrupted.
  • You can easily add more space to your account as needed.
  • Unlike with other email providers, you buy the disk space you actually need and are not given some artificial per-user limit limit

"I am extremely satisfied with your security features and with the extent of knowledge of your support staff. You provide a solid, reliable service and also manage to continue to add more thoughtful features -- all at a reasonable price."
