If the system employs RAID level 10 on the back end storage nodes, can I assume my volumes are fully protected from a failure scenario?


The hardware RAID level 10 employed by Cloud Block Storage nodes provides protection against disk failures on the storage nodes themselves.  However customers are strongly encouraged to implement a RAID level 1 (mirror) configuration across multiple volumes to protect against data loss in the event of a storage node failure.
