How does Cloud Block Storage differ from the local storage available through Cloud Servers today?


Cloud Block Storage provides persistent data storage for next generation Cloud Servers. Persistent storage can exist independent of your cloud server, even after the server has been deleted. The local storage bundled with Cloud Servers is ephemeral and exists only as long as the Cloud Server does. When the cloud server is deleted, so is its local storage.

NOTE: We recommend that you unmount and detach Cloud Block Storage before deleting the server.
