Linode Block Storage
Increase your Linode’s storage capacity by attaching additional high-speed volume sizes up to 10TB. Volumes are managed independently of Linodes, so your data persists even if you delete your Linode.
Resize a Block Storage Volume at any time, giving you the flexibility to update your storage capacity with a few easy steps whenever your needs change.
Independent and Hot Swappable
Volumes are managed independently from a Compute Instance’s local storage and can be attached or detached to any Instance without needing to reboot, allowing you to move Volumes between systems within seconds.
Resilient and Fault Tolerant
Volumes are configured with built-in data replication, ensuring that your data is highly-available and protected from loss.
Store Any Type of Data
Block Storage can be used to store any data, including website files, databases, media files, backups, or even bootable operating systems.
