VM related storage
VM related storage is a fast solid state SSD storage connected to individual Virtual Machines. It is directly available to the VM without the need for mounting or connecting network shares. The quantity of VM related SSD storage reserved for a VM depends on the VM Flavour selected.
This type of storage guarantees:
- High-speed reading and writing
This type of storage consists of Volume Storage that can be attached to VMs as block devices to dynamically extend their storage capabilities. Volume Storage are independent from VMs, they can be easily moved from one VM to another. Users may take snapshots of Volume Storage to be able to revert to their ‘frozen’ state later. Their size is limited only by the size of available storage space. Volumes can also be resized without unmounting. Volume-based VMs can be easily migrated between servers. Volume Storage can be encrypted if a User requests such an option. It is also possible to make a live backup copy of a volume.
Available volume storages are based on redundant SSD and HDD disks clusters. SSD part provides fast operations, while HDD scalability, due to lower costs.
Volume Storage are billed per available GBytes of storage space per month (or longer period) or hour. It can be bought either in Per Usage mode or for Fixed Terms.
S3 - Object Storage
Object Storage is a scalable storage for objects/files with HTTP REST interface. All objects/files operations are performed via REST API. Objects/files can be organized into buckets which act as standard file directories. User can also define access policy for buckets and objects/files. The API is compatible with Amazon S3 so existing AWS S3 tools can be used to manage objects/files and buckets on the storage. Users can also manage objects/files in an easy way via the Cloud Dashboard. The storage can be accessible from the public Internet and from VMs.
System Image service
The Image service holds VM base OS images and volume images. OS images are used to create a VM - they hold the VM's root filesystem. A User can create a new Storage Volume or a new VM from the Image or keep it as a backup.
Backup storage holds library of virtual machines images, optimized for handling Earth Observation data processing.
