Fast & reliable block storage in the cloud

Most databases and apps grow over time, and eventually require increased storage capacity. Adding physical storage or upgrading to a bigger server can be a costly and unscalable way to solve capacity issues.

Cloud Block Storage offers reliable, high-performance, on-demand storage for applications hosted on Cloud Servers. Even the most resource-hungry workloads run seamlessly, so users can always count on your application to perform consistently.

Starting at $0.12/GB/Mo

Choose between Standard and SSD

Easy to provision

After provisioning a Cloud Server, easily add block storage through the control panel or API, and partition as needed.

Faster data

Super-fast 10GbE internal network connection to your storage volume means relief from I/O bottlenecks, increased throughput, and better performance for your apps.

Simple, per-GB pricing model

Includes free I/O. Pay only for the amount of block storage that you provision.

Everything we do is managed cloud. With managed cloud, our experts can run your cloud ops for you, or be there whenever you need help—you choose the level of service you want. Either way, you get 24x7x364 access to engineers who'll help you achieve the highest performance, security, cost efficiency, and scalability for your workloads.

Reliable I/O

As a standard feature, we provision high-capacity storage volumes to significantly reduce IOPS competition and provide a more consistent, high-performance experience.

Standard or SSD

Standard volumes work well for everyday file system needs, while solid state drive (SSD) volumes deliver even higher performance for databases and I/O-intensive apps.


Use a simple, full-featured RESTful web service interface to provision additional block storage or partition existing block storage across your Cloud Servers.

Persistent storage

Your storage is yours to keep. If you delete your server, you can attach its associated block storage to another Cloud Server.


Standard $0.12 $0.000164

For standard volumes, we charge $0.000164/GB/hr. For SSD volumes, we charge $0.000684/GB/hr.

Save snapshots to Cloud Files at just $0.100/GB/mo.

Cloud Block Storage volumes only work with next generation standard and Performance Cloud Servers.

We are able to focus on what we do best and let Rackspace take care of the infrastructure, because the team at Rackspace has a deeper understanding of the Windows Server OS than any other hosting company I’ve seen.
