    [EN] Linode lança block storage (Free Beta)

    Jun 14, 2017



    What is the Linode Block Storage service?

    The Linode Block Storage service allows you to create and attach additional storage volumes to your Linode instances. These storage volumes persist independently of Linode instances, but can easily be attached from one Linode to another without the need to reboot. Volumes attached to Linodes appear as block devices and can be formatted and mounted just like any other block device.

    Block Storage Volumes are highly available with 3x replication. They're fast - built on great engineering, NVMe/SSD hardware, and a fast network. They're affordable - $0.10 per GB (free during the beta) and no usage fees. They're cloud: elastic, scalable, expandable, resizable, etc. You can hot-plug them into and out of running Linodes. Oh, and you can boot off of them, too.

    What can I do?

    • Create Volumes
    • Remove Volumes
    • Resize Volumes
    • Attach a Volume to a Linode
    • Detach a Volume from a Linode
    • Add Volumes to your Linode Configuration Profile block device assignments (changes take effect next boot)


    Snapshotting, cloning, and Volume backups are not implemented - but may be in the future.

    Can I attach a Volume to multiple Linodes?
    Nope. A Volume can only be attached to one Linode at a time.

    How big of a Volume can I create?
    Between 1 GB and 100 GB for now. This is a beta, after all. After the beta, the max volume size will be much larger.

    How many Volumes can I attach to a Linode at the same time?
    Up to 8.

    Can I mount Volumes across datacenters?
    No. Volumes and instances must be in the same region.

    Is there API support?
    Yes. Documentation coming soon!

    How does the beta work?

    • The beta is free - there will be no storage costs.
    • Volumes can only be created in our Newark, NJ datacenter. You will need to have at least one Linode there.
    • Let's be honest - this is a beta. You probably shouldn't store any data on it that you can't afford to lose.


    How can I get in on this?
    To gain access, please open a support ticket requesting to be added to the Block Storage beta. We'd very much appreciate any testing and feedback. You're welcome to reply to this thread or create a new one in the beta category, or email us, or open a ticket - whatever works.

    Thanks,
    -Chris

    PS:

    The 100G size max is only for during the beta. Once we launch, max volume size will be much larger... As for availability in other DCs after beta, we'll work on getting this deployed as fast as we can - once we're good to go.

    It's doubtful that this will ever be integrated into the Linode Backup Service as you know it today. In part because they're just two different systems, and also because we can't, for instance, include backing up 100s of GBs of data on a $5 Linode's backup service which currently only costs a couple bucks.

    If we did anything, it would probably be to automate creating a NEW volume and copying the data over. But the rates (cost) would be the same. You could automate this yourself, for now, by creating a new volume, attaching it to the Linode with the volume you want to back up, copying the data, and unmounting, unplugging.

    I think a popular use of these Volumes will be people performing backups TO them.

    Um uso mais interessante seria usar os volumes para criar raid ZFS e até mesmo boot ZFS mas IMO atualmente não seria seguro rodando Linux. Na Vultr, estou testando VPS 100% ZFS e você não quer outro depois de experimentar.

    FreeBSD. No Linux é um gatilho perigoso para contornar a licença da Oracle. Bomba relógio-> https://icesquare.com/wordpress/zfs-linux-vs-freebsd/

    Teria vários beneficios mas IMO precisaria uns 4 HDDs e root nativo, o que implicaria em não usar Linux. Aqui uma das mágicas: Boot Environments http://daemonforums.org/showthread.php?t=7099

    Estou experimentando na Vultr, com apenas 1 volume mas 100% ZFS.

    Um dos problemas da hospedagem mariola é que não faz uso de multitier -- um servidor roda tudo. Com servidores especializados (banco de dados, mail, Web, backup, etc), SAN, etc as aplicações do ZFS ficariam mais interessantes.
