- Persistent Disk is designed for high durability. It stores data redundantly to ensure data integrity.
- Independent Volumes
- Your storage is located independently from your virtual machine instances, so you can detach or move your disks to keep your data even after you delete your instances.
- Volume Size
- Each persistent disk can be up to 64 TB in size, so there is no need to manage arrays of disks to create large logical volumes.
- Online Resize
- Online growth allows volumes to grow on-demand without the need to restart virtual machines or reattach volumes.
