Highly available Block Storage

Attach highly available and scalable SSD-based Block Storage to your Droplet.

Highly available

Your data is stored on hardware separated from your Droplet and it's replicated multiple times across different racks, reducing the chances of data loss in case of hardware failure.

Live resize

Easily scale Block Storage volumes from 1GB up to 16TB, resize them if you need more space, and move them between Droplets.

Reliable and secure

All your data is encrypted at rest and transmitted to the Droplets over isolated networks.

Programmatically control your volumes

Our API enables you to deploy and manage your block storage volumes in a simple, programmatic way.

Expand Droplet storage space and manage block storage volumes using conventional HTTP requests. Take any number of requests and actions—including creating volumes, attaching, detaching, and retrieving volume information—with curl commands or the official Ruby and Go API wrappers. Includes OAuth support.
