- Block Volume
The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Block Volume service lets you dynamically provision and
manage block storage volumes. You can create, attach, connect, and move volumes, as well
as change volume performance, as needed, to meet your storage, performance, and
application requirements. After you attach and connect a volume to an instance, you can use
the volume like a regular hard drive. You can also disconnect a volume and attach it to
another instance without the loss of data.
- Built-in Security and Protection
Encrypted and isolated
By default, all block volumes and their backups are encrypted at rest and isolated by tenancy for maximum security.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Block Volumes service is based on the industry-standard iSCSI protocol. Simplified paravirtualized options enable volume attachment without iSCSI configuration commands
Volumes can be attached for read/write access by default, or read-only as needed.
- Robust Data Protection
All volumes have built-in durability and run on redundant hardware.
Integrated Backup to Object Storage
Automated and policy-based scheduled backups, as well as a choice of incremental versus full on-demand backups, are built-in and provided at no additional cost.
Backup your block and boot volumes to highly durable Oracle Object Storage automatically based on an automated policy or on-demand with just a few clicks, without impact on running applications.
Cross-region backup copy for business continuity, migration, expansion of applications, and data on remote regions.
Attach restored block and boot volume backups to new or existing compute instances. Scale out many copies of your data for demanding applications by restoring a backup to multiple block volumes.
- Consistent High Performance
Get 60 IOPS per GB, up to a maximum of 25,000 IOPS per volume for balanced configuration, or 75 IOPS per GB, up to a maximum of 35,000 IOPS per volume for higher performance configuration, backed by Oracle’s highest-performance SLA.
- Integrated Data Protection
Block and boot volumes can be backed up seamlessly to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage, enabling frequent recovery points.
- Easily Scale Up or Down
Scale block and boot volumes from 50 GB up to 32 TB. Dynamically attach and detach up to 32 block volumes to scale up to 1 PB of remote block storage per compute instance.
Extend existing block and boot volumes by taking them offline and resizing up to 32 TB. You can also clone existing volumes or restore from backups to move to larger volumes.
Dynamically reconfigure and scale existing or new block volumes for performance or cost.
