Why block storage?

Although block storage isn’t as scalable as object storage, it is the solution for those looking to store data they need to access and change often. With block storage, individual pieces of data can be edited without compromising the entire block of data. Block storage is more expensive and complex, but block data can be accessed without compromising operating system performance.
