Block Storage

Block storage units are disk volumes attached to virtual servers. Those volumes are accessed through the file system. They can be either SSD or HDD. Disk volumes can often be moved from one server to another and persist even without being attached to any server.

Backups

Backups allow storing copies of disk volumes. They can be used to restore a server state to a state at some other point in time. The concepts of Backups and Snapshots largely overlap. Some providers offer both features, some others only one of them. The main difference is that backups are often tied to a particular server and providers add scheduling functions on top of the backups so that users don't need to manually manage them.
