Cloud Block Storage Delivers Convenience and Performance

What Is Cloud Block Storage?

Block storage (also known as block-level storage) is the preferred data storage format used by storage area networks (SANs) found in data centers. In block storage, data is stored in blocks where it can be accessed quickly and efficiently by software applications and virtual machines. Cloud block storage is block storage that’s stored in the cloud.

Operating and maintaining your own data center can be costly and time-consuming. As a result, with the advent of cloud storage, many businesses have turned to cloud service providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure for their block storage needs.

Benefits of cloud block storage include:

  • The convenience of cloud storage
  • Reliable I/O performance (IOPS/$)
