In this article we are going to see step by step creating block volume storage for oracle cloud infrastructure instance
- 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 needed to meet your storage and application requirements. Once attached and connected to an instance, you can use a volume like a regular hard drive. Volumes can also be disconnected and attached to another instance without the loss of data.
- A common usage of Block Volume is adding storage capacity to an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure instance. Once you have launched an instance and set up your cloud network, you can create a block storage volume through the Console or API. Once created, you attach the volume to an instance using a volume attachment. Once attached, you connect to the volume from your instance’s guest OS using iSCSI or paravirtualized mode. The volume can then be mounted and used by your instance.
