  1. Nice diagrams, and bullet points. Got a question. File storage undoubtedly requires a file system, and stores its information in a hierarchy. Does Block storage use a file system and hierarchy? I know Object storage does not save file information in a hierarchy, but I’m not “absolutely” certain if there is a file system involved. What say you?

    1. Hi Trevor – block storage does not use a file system. Why it seems like it does is the fact that we typically interact with the data stored by block storage using an Operating System that does map a file system to this data. So for example, a directly attached storage device is having the data written to it in block form. When you run Windows against this data, it presents us with the NTFS file system for accessing this data.
