Hi there,

I was wondering if there is an easy way to create a clone / duplicate of a block storage device?

Yes. You can take snapshot of a block volume, and then create a new volume from that snapshot. ( It’s under Images->Snapshots->Volumes ). That new volume will contain the same data content as the original volume at the time of the snapshot.
