How to detach a volume from a Cloud instance

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. You can detach a volume from one instance and reattach it to another instance, without losing the data stored on the volume.

Note: When detaching a volume, ensure that there are no running applications actively using the volume as it can result in data loss or corruption.
