Block Storage


What is it ?

Block storage from NIPA Cloud is a technology that is used to store data on instances with high performance and a high number of IOPs. By using storage volume as a block storage, this is a 100% volume-based cluster, allowing users to scale up or down the instance flexibly with nearly no downtime. There is data replication multiple times to prevent data loss. Furthermore, our storage uses Ceph as a software-defined storage to enable flexibility, efficiency, and faster scalability.

Ceph is an open source software-defined storage designed for redundancy while maintaining high performance and low latency with no downtime. Ceph is built to be seamlessly scalable with automatic storage cluster management in order to keep your data safe at a reasonable price.


Why NIPA’s storage

1 Million IOPs Available

NIPA Cloud team optimizes Ceph with NVMe to enable the highest IOPs. There are more than 1 million IOPs available in the entire cluster.

Ceph Storage Technology

With Ceph storage adaptability, NIPA cloud is ready to support all your applications and prevent the data loss while replicating data multiple times.

Reasonable Storage Spend

You can optimize your cost with the storage management service based on speed and frequency required to access your data.

Storage Types

NIPA Cloud provides multiple volume storage types to support various scenarios. You can choose the performance efficiency that suits your cost and requirement.

The volume types are categorized into 3 types as follows:


Hard Disk Drive with affordable price designed for low-speed data read and write operations, such as cold storage, small/medium-scale dev & testing, web server logs, and office applications.


Solid State Drive with high-speed data read and write operations designed for high IOPs workload, such as frequently accessed workload, hot or warm storage, and more.



Premium Solid State Drive performance with ultra-low latency, highest speed, and highest IOPs available designed for high performance computing, IOPs and throughput intensive workload, data warehouses, and large database.

Supported Features


Create volume storage snapshot for data backup and system recovery to prevent data loss. Easier optimize cost due to the incremental backup.


Extend the volume storage size to store more data on demand.


Users can attach or detach storage volumes to fit their workloads as needed.

Upload to Image

Upload volume data to image, so the data can be stored on multiple AZs. You can duplicate volumes between AZs by creating new volume using this image.

Transfer Across Projects

Volume can be transfered to another project in the same cluster.
