Yes and they are probably one the best in the "mass virtual hosting market".

We have different definitions of "one of the best"

From their server I do a simple du on a couple GB of data.
[arizona]$ time du -sh *
120M    config-enc-raw
387M    home-enc-raw
1.8G    srv-enc-raw

real    64m27.529s
user    0m0.650s
sys     0m2.540s

From my server with significantly larger superset of data:

# time du -sh config-enc-raw/ home-enc-raw/ config-enc-raw/
120M    config-enc-raw/
10G     home-enc-raw/
1.8G    srv-enc-raw/

real    1m33.608s
user    0m0.568s
sys     0m5.148s

Thats about 40 times slower than my machine with is nothing special
(ie. 5 year old P4 technology with a 3ware dual-channel raid-1 setup).

I'm still testing.  (I need to time some actual rsync passes.  I'm
particularly curious how it responds in the middle of the night.)

If you have different needs, your next step is probably a VPS.

I have one from slicehost, but they don't even offer 300GB+ of disk capacity

There's also Synchronize (, which is a part of JetS3t
