Data at rest encryption
Provider-managed encryption at rest by default protects your data at no additional cost or impact to performance.
Concurrent access. High availability and durability.
Mount block devices simultaneously in clustering configurations with redundant MPIO connections. Avoid data loss during maintenance or failures without creating system-level RAID arrays.
Data center availability
Features including flash-backed storage, encryption for data at rest, snapshots and replication, volume duplication, expandable volumes and adjustable IOPS are currently available in the US, EU, Australia, Canada, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions.
