Google Volumes

Table of Contents


Volumes provide persistent, high-performance, and high-availability block-level storage which you can attach to a running Instance in the Cloud (in the same zone only). Volumes can be formatted and mounted as a file system. You can attach a Volume to a Server at run-time or schedule it to be attached at boot-time. Multiple volumes can be mounted to the same Instance, but a Volume can only be attached to one Instance at a time. You can take Volume Snapshots at a particular point in time and then create multiple Volumes from a snapshot and place them into any zone however. You can also view the lineage of a Volume or Volume Snapshot to see when it was created, as well as any parent/child relationships it has.
