Plan for HDD based Block Storage?

Are there any plans to have HDD based Block Storage? I believe the current Volume are based on SSD and the price is quite high. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying SSD based Volume are bad but I need low price storage which I really don’t care the speed of it.

Hey friend,

Great question! We’ve definitely heard some feedback on this. I won’t say that we haven’t talked about it, but there are currently no active plans to pursue this. Should that change in the future, we’ll be sure to let you know.


+1 for this. I am also looking for such solution. Vultr provides HDD based volumes. I am looking for cheaper storage solution. It is difficult to rename folders in Spaces. So I am looking for low cost HDD based Block storage.

Yeah, some cheap HDD storage in the Terabytes would be useful for some things. Definitely some apps that aren’t easily made under the current model.

+1 for this. Cheaper Volume storage for non performance critical data would be very helpful
