Block storage concept

The concept blockstorage is not so clear to me at the moment. I read the articles and it still doesn’t answer my question.

I have a particular scenario: a webapplication is growing month by month in storage capacity needs. Is blockstorage good for this purpose? Lets say I take 100GB now, and next year i see the storage is almost at its limit. So I take another 100GB. Would this make my ftp total size 200GB ?

Thanks in advance, Kind regards
