Highly available block storage

Attach secure, scalable NVMe- and SSD-based Volumes Block Storage to Droplets.

Scalable and reliable block storage

Highly available

Highly available

Your data is stored separately from your Droplet and replicated across different racks so your data remains available even in the event of a failure.

Live resize

Live resize

Easily scale block storage from 1 GiB up to 16 TiB, resize them if you need more space, and move them between Droplets.

Reliable and secure

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 Volumes Block Storage in a simple, programmatic way.

volume = DropletKit::Volume.new(
  name: 'volume-01',
  region: 'nyc3',
  size_gigabytes: 10
)
client.volumes.create(volume)

Powerful APIs

Expand Droplet storage space and manage block storage 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, all including OAuth support.
