Cloud storage in Cleura Cloud

Cloud Storage is one of the essential components of a virtual server in cloud-based IT infrastructure, along with computing power and network functionality. We provide three types of storage functions - block, object, and image storage - that can be utilized in various ways when building your cloud infrastructure in our Public, Private and Compliant Cloud.

Cleura Cloud leverages OpenStack projects such as Cinder, Swift, and Glance to deliver reliable and efficient storage solutions.

Cloud storage provisioning

Provisioning of cloud storage resources can be done through Cleura Cloud Management Panel or 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 cloud 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.

Scalable cloud storage in Cleura Cloud

Scalable cloud storage is a versatile solution that enables businesses to easily adjust their storage capacity to accommodate changing data needs. It provides cost-effectiveness by allowing users to pay only for the storage they require. With seamless scalability, businesses can effortlessly scale up or down their storage capacity as demand fluctuates. This ensures optimal performance and resource allocation. Additionally, scalable cloud storage offers high availability and reliability through built-in redundancy and data replication mechanisms. It is an ideal choice for businesses aiming for adaptable and dependable data storage solutions that can support their evolving requirements.

Object storage resilience

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.

Cloud Storage Monitoring

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.

3 benefits of Cleura 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.


Volumes can easily be moved between virtual servers and expanded directly from the Cleura Cloud Management Panel. When building your cloud infrastructure, you can also take volume snapshots or create new images from any volume.


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.

What is cloud storage?

Cloud storage allows users to store, manage, and access data in the cloud rather than on physical storage devices. Cloud storage systems are typically operated, and managed by cloud service providers, such as Cleura, on physical servers that rely on virtualization techniques. Renting cloud-based storage space comes with many advantages compared to purchasing and managing physical storage devices such as scalability, reliability, and accessibility. In many cases, cloud storage services include additional features like backup, disaster recovery, and data synchronization, making it a popular choice for both individual users and businesses for efficiently and securely storing their digital data.

Types of cloud storage

Block storage

Block storage is a data storage format where data is stored in fixed-sized blocks, each with a unique identifier. While file storage organizes data into a hierarchy of files and folders, block storage splits data into uniformly sized blocks that can be controlled individually. This method allows for very efficient storage, retrieval, and modification of data, as each block can be accessed and edited independently without impacting other blocks. Block storage is particularly well-suited for environments requiring high performance and low latency, such as database systems, virtual machine file systems, and high-transaction applications.

Object storage

Object storage treats data as discrete units called objects. Each object is accompanied by metadata and a unique identifier. Object storage manages data as a single, complete element, making it highly scalable and flexible. For easy retrieval and management, each object contains the data, metadata and a globally unique identifier. The metadata, which can be extensive, provides rich information about the data and enhances capabilities such as indexing and management. Object storage is particularly well suited to use with unstructured data such as photos, videos and documents, and is often used in cloud storage environments because it can handle massive amounts of data across distributed systems, providing durability, high availability and easy access over the web.

Benefits of cloud storage


Cloud storage offers unparalleled accessibility, allowing users to access their data from any where, any time. The ability to access files on-demand enhances productivity and ensures that important information is always available facilitating better customer service and business agility, as data can be retrieved and managed in real-time.

Backup and recovery

Cloud storage provides robust backup and recovery solutions, essential for protection against data loss. The automatic or scheduled backup processes in cloud storage services is more reliable and less labor-intensive than traditional backup methods and advanced recovery options can minimize downtime in case of issues, which is crucial for maintaining business continuity.

Scalability and flexibility

Being able to easily adjust your cloud storage capacity allows for cost-effective management of data. As a company grows or the volume of data increases, additional storage space can be added without the need for significant capital investment in physical infrastructure. The same, of course, applies the other way around. This flexibility also extends to the types of data that can be stored, from small documents to large multimedia files, making cloud storage a versatile solution for almost any data storage need.


Cloud storage offers cost-effectiveness as you only pay for the storage capacity you actually use. This eliminates the need for expensive hardware investments and reduces maintenance costs associated with server operations.
