Block storage

Genesis Cloud offers block storage volumes for persistent data storage that you can dynamically configure and attach to your instance.

Use block storage to increase your instances storage capacity by attaching volumes that are managed independently of your instances. Attached volumes are not deleted when you delete your instance so your data can be reused on another instance or kept for archival purposes. Volume storage capacity can be dynamically increased to scale with your application.
