How to create a Cloud volume from a volume snapshot

Note: This article relates to a product currently in beta testing.

A volume is a detachable block storage device that can be attached to an instance to provide extra storage space, much like connecting a USB drive.

Creating a new volume from a volume snapshot entails essentially converting the static, point-in-time copy of the original volume into a usable storage device.

This new volume can be attached to instances, allowing you to access and manipulate the data preserved in the snapshot.
