Local disks

The local disk is connected directly to the compute server through the PCIe interface via NVMe protocol. Therefore, the local disk can be created with cloud server only and used as a boot (system) disk.

The local disk has no network latency, so it is suitable for tasks that are sensitive to read and write speeds.

Local Disk Features

  • SSD NVMe disk.
  • Performance — read 12800 IOPS, write 6400 IOPS.
  • Throughput is 300 MB/s.
  • The recommended maximum disk capacity is 2 TB.
  • The disk subsystem is configured in RAID 10.
  • Can only be a cloud server boot disk, not used as an additional disk. Only network volumes can be connected as additional disks.
  • A cloud server can only have one local disk.
  • You cannot disconnect from the cloud server and connect to another server.
  • You can't maximize directly, you can only change cloud server configuration.
  • You cannot create another disk, snapshot, or backup from a local disk. You can create a disk image (for example, to quickly clone a server).
  • Deleted with all data when the cloud server is deleted.


Local disks are paid using cloud platform payment model.

The cost of a local disk depends on its size and the pool segment in which the cloud server with that disk is created.

Every GB of local disks is paid for. The cost per GB can be viewed at
