Storage Types

Oblivus Cloud offers two distinct storage types for users: Local Storage and Network Storage. Each storage type has its unique features and benefits, which we will explain below.

Local Storage offers better performance but comes with its limitations. Instances with local storage can only be upgraded and cannot be downgraded. Additionally, it's not possible to change the GPU/CPU model or the instance type after the virtual machine is deployed.

Network storage provides lower performance but offers scalability for instances. Instances with network storage can be upgraded, downgraded, the selected GPU/CPU model and the instance type can be changed at any time after the instances is deployed.

The root storage cannot be expanded after the virtual machine creation. To increase storage capacity, network-based additional disks can be added to the virtual machine.


NVMe SSD stands for Non-Volatile Memory Express Solid State Drive. It is a high-speed, flash-based storage device that offers exceptionally fast read and write speeds, low latency, and high IOPS (input/output operations per second). NVMe SSDs are ideal for workloads that require high-speed data access, such as databases, analytics, and virtualization. At Oblivus Cloud, we recommend using NVMe SSDs for better storage performance and faster data access.
