Volumes support automatic formatting and mounting, resizing, and snapshots. They have burst support for improved IOPS and bandwidth rates and are encrypted with LUKS.
Volumes cost $0.10 GiB per month and range from 1 GiB to 16 TiB (16,384 GiB). Charges accrue hourly for as long as the volume exists.
