Is Cloud Block Storage right for me?


Cloud Block Storage is an excellent option for you if you:   

  • Want more control over your storage or application infrastructure
  • Are looking for a high performance storage option (SSD)
  • Would like to add additional storage to your servers without paying for additional compute resources

You might not be a good fit for the Cloud Block Storage service if you:

  • Are leveraging first generation Cloud Servers
  • Are not comfortable with low-level system administration tasks, such as installing file systems, mounting and partitioning storage volumes, or installing your own applications on top of a raw storage device
  • Are looking for a fully managed storage or database solution
