TeraCLOUD implements a WebDAV engine (high-speed WebDAV) that has been improved specifically for TeraCLOUD, based on high-speed, highly versatile "Apache mod_dav".

*We do not accept inquiries about third-party WebDAV client software.


About high-speed WebDAV


About WebDAV clients that may not be recommended or may not be available

For WebDAV clients such as the following, it may not be possible to use normally.

Mounting as a file system


In general, volumes mounted as a file system are devices with fast reaction speeds, so applications that access that volume are built on the assumption that reaction speed is fast.

For example, Windows explorer, Mac OS X Finder, Nautilus on Linux gnome, etc. can see file information, check directory information before opening the file, and before the user's file access I access things and create thumbnails and do various processing.

Unfortunately, the response speed of TeraCLOUD's WebDAV service exists on the Internet and shared by a large number of people because it is shared, so the response speed is unfortunately considerably slow compared to these local devices, and its speed may exceed 1000 times. As a result, applications that frequently access detailed data often acquire data frequently, which can be extremely prolific and may not be in time for the timeout time of file browsers (Explorer, Finder, Nautilus, etc.) Yes.

In addition, these clients do not resume, so even if there is a disruption due to the influence of the network or server, we will not perform a retry with a resume.Although TeraCLOUD will continue to improve speed in the future, considering the delay of the Internet, unfortunately it will become unbearable and it will be impossible to successfully complete file uploading and downloading It is possible.

Therefore, we recommend using WebDAV client software on Windows / Mac OS X / Linux.

Other compatibility issues

We will describe them later.
