Two storage types are available for your data needs:

Primary storage— a high-throughput EBS-like storage most suitable for frequently accessed data of your production/test/dev loads.

Secondary storage— a medium-throughput EBS-like storage to store infrequently accessed data like backups and archives.

Additional storage can be purchased in increments based on your storage tier:

  • up to 250 GB in 10 GB increments
  • up to 500 GB in 25 GB increments
  • up to 1000 GB in 50 GB increments
  • > 1000 GB in 100 GB increments
