Cloud Storage

Scalable Cloud Storage


Storage completes the trifecta of features that make up a virtual server at the core of any cloud infrastructure. We offer three types of storage features, block, object, and image storage, which can be used in various ways to build your infrastructure. Our storage features are powered by a set of OpenStack projects named Cinder, Swift, and Glance.

Block storage

Object storage

Image storage

Cloud storage provisioning


Provisioning of storage resources is done from our cloud management system or through the OpenStack API. You can create, scale, attach and detach storage volumes to your virtual servers and store your private images. You can also take snapshots of virtual servers and volumes, either as backups or as templates, to quickly grow your infrastructure. Using AWS S3 APIs or OpenStack Swift APIs, you can easily connect different data sources directly to our Object Storage and automatically store large amounts of data.
Our Object Storage offers strong resilience, providing 99.999% of annual durability. We achieve this by spreading data across multiple fault domains in a redundant configuration to protect it from hardware failures.

We constantly monitor data integrity, and failures are detected and automatically repaired. Our systems are monitored 24/7 by our professional and skilled Teams to ensure accessibility to data at any time.

The benefits of using scalable cloud storage

Disaster recovery

Our paid disaster recovery feature includes ten versions of your block storage instances, allowing you to go back in time and recover data from 10 days back at any time.

Elasticity

Volumes can easily be moved between virtual servers and expanded directly from our cloud management system. When building your cloud infrastructure, you can also take volume snapshots or create new images from any volume.

Persistency

All Cleura storage features are persistent and can only be deleted on your command. You never have to worry about losing data when stopping virtual servers in City Cloud.
