What is File Storage?
File Storage features
Choose simple, predefined endurance tiers with per-GB pricing—ideal for most general workloads. Fine tune your environment with allocated IOPS and performance options—ideal for workload requirements that aren't well-defined.
Smart and safe management
Stay confident with storage designed to protect against data loss during maintenance or failures with at rest data encryption, volume duplication, and snapshots and replication.
