Instance storage is something that is—that you do get for free. It is attached to your instance, as the name would suggest, but one of the key aspects of the instance storage is it is nonpersistent. What that means is when you shut down your virtual
machine or instance or if it was to fail, the storage that you have that is instant storage, will be gone. So will the data that is residing on the storage. This data is non-recoverable. It's a very important point to address and understand. Instant
storage is available or included in the price of your instance, but is non-persistent.
