Block Storage

The Amaze Block Storage (ABS) provides redundant, high-performance storage volumes designed to be used within the Amaze Cloud Platform for Cloud Servers or Virtual Data Center infrastructure.

The block storage volumes are available in different fit-for-purpose performance tiers catering to a large range of workloads from intensive database workloads to general application and development workloads.

Highly Available – volume data is stored on redundant hardware separate from your cloud compute instances. This is backed up and geographically replicated, reducing substantially the risk of data loss in case of hardware failure.

Flexible and Scalable – Move your storage volumes between cloud server instances or easily resize them if your storage requirements change.

Performant – We offer several type of storage classes to suit any class of application requirement – highly performant (speed & IOPs intensive), general purpose, local SSD/RAID and backup storage volumes. All ABS storage service is an all-Flash (SSD) backed high-availability service.

Backups

A backup strategy can be designed to augment the integrity and availability of your live business data.  The Amaze Cloud Platform supports manual or automatic (scheduled) server backups. Backups can be full or incremental and are by default stored on Tier-3 storage volumes. Backups are charged at the storage costs applicable to the size of backups, which can vary depending on compression levels and full/incremental image sizes.

Backups of virtual machines can be converted to Templates which can be used later to deploy custom, pre-configured cloud server instances.
