Linode released a new storage service named “Block Storage” in June 2017. It allows adding 1TB of storage to VPS.
What is Block Storage?
Block Storage operates independently of the Linode instance, so it can be mounted or unmounted to another server without having to reboot. Block Storage Volumes are highly available with 3x replication, NVMe/HDD hardware and was connected to Linode’s cloud platform.
So with Block Storage, you can:
- Create Volumes
- Remove Volumes
- Resize Volumes
- Attach a Volume to a Linode
- Detach a Volume from a Linode
- Add Volumes to your Linode Configuration Profile block device assignments
DigitalOcean had been providing the same service for a long time, and they have even released a new product – Object Storage.
Vultr is testing in some locations, and Linode has just begun beta testing in Fremont.
The price of Linode Block Storage is similar to those of other providers, $ 0.10 per GB and FREE from now until 2017. You only have to pay from 2018.
So absolutely you can experience Block Storage right now by logging into the Linode Manager page, then selecting Manage Volumes.
Please go to Linode’s Website for further information.
