What is Elastic Block Storage ?

Block Storage is a high-performance, low latency block storage service for FLOU Cloud ECS. That supports random or sequential read and write operations. Similar to a physical disk, you can format a Block Storage device and create a file system on it to adapt to your business’ needs for data storage.

Features of Block Storage

  • Online Scaling

Scales out disks without service disruption. You do not need to restart ECS instances or detach disks during scaling

  • Data Protection

Creates snapshots for disks to support data protection, data recovery, image customization, and application disaster recovery

  • Data Encryption

Supports data encryption and eliminates the need for users to build or maintain individual key management systems

  • I/O Isolation

Enables storage input/output (I/O) isolation for enterprise-level instances with dedicated bandwith

Benefit of Block Storage

  • High Reliability

Deploys disks in a distributed architecture to guarantee 99.9% data reliability that is much higher than that of physical disks

  • Scalability

Supports storage capacities of up to 32 TiB on each disk and allows disk scaling without service disruption

  • High Performance

Provides a single disk with the random read/write performance that reaches up to 1,000,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS)

  • Security

Enables simple and efficient data backup based on snapshots and meet industry compliance requirements by using the Bring Your Own Key (BYOK) model
