Top features of Cloud Volume Services for Google Cloud

Boost your application and business performance with the leading shared file storage on Google Cloud.

  • Flexible storage and capacity that can change on the fly

    With four service tiers that can be changed on demand, you can find the right performance fit for your workload and adjust as the nature of your application changes. Performance for each cloud volume scales with the amount of allocated capacity, so performance isn’t limited as your dataset size grows. You can also increase or decrease the allocated capacity on the fly without having to worry about adding or deleting underlying nodes.

  • High availability built-in and supported with 99.99% SLA

    Cloud Volumes Service is regional, allowing application instances in any of the Google Cloud zones in each region to access the same NFS volume without the need to create and manage a zonal Linux cluster. This design helps to avoid unnecessary zonal egress charges and delivers service unaffected by zonal outages.

  • Easy snapshot copies that don’t impact performance

    NetApp® Snapshot™ technology lets you automate or manually create point-in-time representations of your data for restoring databases or shared file systems without downtime. Snapshots are simple and nondisruptive, creating a read-only view that enables applications to access older file versions and directory hierarchies without additional workflows.

  • Data encryption by default so you’re always protected

    At-rest AES 256-bit encryption protects data without compromising application performance. Additionally, NetApp’s separation of the control plane and data plane gives you increased control and security. This single-source solution can increase your organization’s overall regulatory compliance without compromising user experience.

  • Support for multiple protocols

    With Cloud Volumes Service, you get support for NFSv4.1 protocol for applications needing secure, stateful session connectivity to file volumes and support for SMBv3 multichannel for improved throughput on Windows workloads.

  • Integrated data protection

    Meet data protection goals and comply with strict security and privacy regulations.​ Protect files with zone redundancy, scheduled backups and cross-region disaster recovery.​
