Billing Account

Billing Account is a method of tracking spend within a specific public cloud. It is linked to a single fund with one or more users. Use more than one Billing Account per cloud only when you need to track spend separately. You may create a new Billing Account on a different public cloud at anytime. Note that users cannot see/manage services between different Billing Accounts without special roles being added so only create Billing Accounts when no sharing is needed or if you are an advanced user.

Block Storage

Block storage is an approach to data storage in which each storage volume acts as an individual hard drive that is configured by the storage administrator. In the block storage model, data is saved to the storage media in fixed-sized chunks called blocks. Each block is associated with a unique address, and the address is the only metadata assigned to each block. [Source: TechTarget]
