2 TB network drive for your cloud?

Friends, tell me the best way to do it.
Now all my business files are stored in classic clouds. But somehow it’s not calm ...
I want to keep the ability to synchronize files on a PC with the cloud, and raise the cloud on my server.
I took a closer look at ownCloud , but the question of cost arose. If I understand correctly, a fairly simple VPS on a separate IP + external network drive. The question is, where can I rent a 2 TB network drive to store cloud files there. Wherein:

  1. You can not worry about the safety of data, that is, store backups of all office PCs there
  2. You can not worry that someone will get access to files without my permission

Thanks for answers.

Firstly, most likely no one will give 2 TB. And if it does ... the price will be at least 10 light years.
Secondly, everyone knows that storing data in the clouds is not safe, especially such compromising information as backups. If a hacker finds a loophole, then your entire company is screwed.
Conclusion: just buy disks (hard drives) or SSL

They don't do this if they want to save money:
Firstly, a local disk is cheaper and faster than some server on the Internet.
Secondly - if you really want to store gigabytes, then they are not stored on VPS / VDS. And on specialized cloud storages.
On S3, for example. And on VPS/VDS only logic is stored.
Thirdly, there are also special backup storages - Amazon Gacier, for example. This is already near the minimum price. But even on it, storing 2 terabytes in full will cost you $ 14-15 per month.
In quads - if you don't want someone to hypothetically view your files - use encryption.
Hosting admins can easily get into the same VPS / VDS, moreover, you will sometimes even set such tasks for them yourself.

Why not store an encrypted container in the clouds?
As an option, put a budget nas at home and keep the data in it
