Thanks for the suggestions. Please see below.

Sounds good, though NetBSD driver seems challenging as per my web search.

Thanks. Will search. If you know any good ones, please do suggest.


Also any techniques known by which I do not need encryption at a file
level?

Probably if you get a virtual server itself, you can create encrypted FS.
Not sure about options available. Also it might turn out to be costlier
than "just storage".

Alternatively a local replica can be maintained that forms encrypted
chunks of files. Even for that if any filesystem provides builtin support
it would be nice.
