The new general-purpose CVS service type is intended for standard workloads, such as file and application shares, secondary storage, and moderate application workloads that need up to 100 MiB/s of performance. The CVS-Performance service type name refers to the service that was previously available as Cloud Volumes Service before the introduction of separate service types.

  • Feature: The CVS service type is available in the following regions: us-west1 (Oregon), us-east1 (South Carolina), europe-west1 (Belgium), europe-north1 (Finland), and southamerica-east1 (São Paulo, Brazil). The CVS-Performance service type is available in the europe-west4 (Netherlands) and northamerica-northeast1 (Montreal) regions. See Regional availability for Cloud Volumes Service.

  • Feature: Volumes that use the CVS service type can be backed up to Google Cloud Storage using the API for long-term protection and disaster recovery. See Backing up and restoring a cloud volume.

  • Feature: Volumes that use the CVS-Performance service type can use NFSv4.1 ACLs. See Creating and managing NFS volumes.
