  • or to add new volumes,
  • up to 1TB per volume,
  • and at the price of 0.06€/GB/Month!

  • Usage-based billing

    GandiCloud volumes are billed post-payment, hourly and per GB, according to the basic monthly price: €0.06 excl. VAT / GB / Month.

  • Additional volumes are detachable

    Easily move your additional volumes from one server to another by detaching and reattaching them without constraint.

  • Management via UI or OpenStack CLI

    Use your methods and tools to manage your storage resources; directly from the web interface, in command line (CLI) or with infra-as-code tools (eg Terraform).

  • Up to 1TB per volume

    Each GandiCloud Volume Block can be extended up to 1TB. However, it is not possible to reduce the size of a volume.

  • ZFS-based storage

    Our storage infrastructure is based on ZFS to guarantee a good level of replication and performance.

  • Snapshots

    For each volume, it is possible to take manual snapshots, or activate the automatic snapshots option to keep previous versions of your data.

Thanks to the OpenStack public API, you can use your infrastructure management tools for your GandiCloud resources.
For example, if you use Terraform to drive your infrastructure, you can simply create a new volume type resource.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our standard policy allows attaching up to 8 volumes per server. It is possible to go beyond this limit on request.

No, it is not necessary to shut down your server to add a volume to it. On the other hand, it will probably be necessary (depending on your OS) to mount the volume for it to be fully usable. See the documentation for more details.
