TransIP provides 1TB free cloud storage which they called stack. The stack can be used to store your file or host image, and you can mount this cloud storage to your VPS to extend disk space if you want.
Get free cloud storage
There are two TransIP sites provide this free service, one in Netherlands(transip.nl) and the other is in Belgium(transip.be). According to feedback, Netherlands site has strict account information review. So I suggest registering Belgium site.

Before we start, I suggest you install translate plugin in your browser cause the website is in Dutch.

Set language into English
The stack admin panel supports English but not default. We can set the language in English by following steps.
1. Goto https://[YOURNAME].stackstorage.com/files and log in.
2. Click the username in the upper right corner, and click the gear icon.
3. On this page, click the drop down box and select English.
Mount to Linux
The official doc has guidance for GUI environment(including Windows, Linux, and macOS). But mount it under CLI is also simple.
First, you need to install davfs2.
sudo apt install davfs2
During the installation, davfs2 will ask you whether unprivileged users can enter to a certain directory.
Then, mount TransIP cloud storage with a simple command.
mount -t davfs https://[YOURNAME].stackstorage.com/remote.php/webdav/ /mnt/webdav/
You need to enter your stack username and password.
And now, cloud storage has been mounted on your VPS successfully. You can use this cloud storage as a local directory. It’s free, so backup your data as frequently as possible.
