High-Performance Workloads with Large Data Sets

Block volumes provide high-performance, persistent cloud storage for a wide range of application workloads. Block volumes can scale to 1 PB per compute instance. Typical workloads include NoSQL databases, Hadoop/HDFS applications, Internet of Things (IoT), and ecommerce applications.

Block Storage Cloning

Create one or more point-in-time, direct disk-to-disk copies of an existing volume, both block and boot volumes, within seconds, for scenarios such as storage scale out, disaster recovery, DevTest environments, duplication, and production troubleshooting.

Realtime Elastic Performance and Cost Configuration

Dynamically change the performance and cost characteristics of block storage and boot volumes instantaneously, while they are online, as frequent as needed, without a lengthy process or downtime.

Volume Groups

Group multiple block and boot volumes, and perform crash-consistent point-in-time coordinated backups and clones across all the volumes in the group.

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.
  • Industry-standard connectivity

  • 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

    Highly reliable

  • 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.
  • Volume Restores

  • 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.

Boot Volumes

  • Manageable and versatile boot volumes for compute instances with all the advantages of block volumes, including backup, clone, volume groups, elastic performance and cost capabilities.
  • Custom size large boot volumes up to 32 TB in 1 GB increments.

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 growing their size 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.
