Disks and file storage
To work with data, you can attach the following Compute Cloud resources to VMs:
|Disk||A virtual analog of a physical drive attached to a VM as a network block device. You can only attach one disk to a single VM. You can make a copy of the disk's file system: a disk snapshot.|
|File storage||A virtual file system attached to a VM through the Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE) interface as a virtiofs device. You can attach one file storage to multiple VMs.|
You can attach multiple disks (in addition to the required boot disk) and multiple file stores to each VM.
Certain technical restrictions on read and write operations apply to disks and file storage.
