Block storage is a form of data storage used in storage-area network (SAN) ambience where data can be stored in volumes or termed as blocks. Cloud block storage is a phenomenon in cloud-hosted data persistence, where cloud services imitate similar behavior of traditional block devices, for instance that of hard drive. It offers replication for reliability, backup services, and other facilities.
Cloud block storage is a form of Network Attached Storage (NAS). Servers can boot from network attached cloud storage block and one can attach up to 10 Cloud Block Storage volumes per cloud servers. Cloud block storage is preferred for databases as they require consistent I/O performance & low-latency connectivity, and can run mission-critical applications such as Microsoft Share Point, Microsoft Exchange, and Oracle.
The global cloud block storage market is expected to register substantial growth in the near future, attributed to growth in need for enterprise mobility, easy deployment of cloud storage solutions, and increased adoption of hybrid cloud storage among end users. Further, high rate of adoption of cloud based storage among small & mid-size organizations, growth in need of better data management system as there is a constant increase in raw data among enterprises, and increase in need of technologically advanced storage solutions is expected to offer significant growth opportunities to the global cloud block storage market. However, lack of high network bandwidth and additional costs associated with the services hamper the market growth.
