Persistent storage (block)

Persistent storage is the “harddisk” of a compute instance. This comes in the form of volumes, which can use either of our Storage types as backing media to save data permanently.

Binero cloud will not provision an instance without a volume attached and the smallest volume allowed will be the size of the image that you want to provision your instance using. The image is the operating system that is pre-installed onto a volume, however since Binero cloud is using shared images (“base images”), users will get their own volumes that will save the delta (that is the changes) from the image as well as their files and data. This speeds up provisioning of the instances dramatically and is totally transparent from the users perspective.
