Creating volumes

While it is convenient to create desired volumes while creating a target group, you can also do this at any time afterwards.


To create a volume

  1. Open Storage services > Block storage > Volumes, and then click Create volume. A wizard will open.
  2. On Name and size, enter a volume name and specify a size in gigabytes. Note that volumes can be extended later but not shrunk.

  3. On Storage policy, select a redundancy mode, a storage tier, and a failure domain. To benefit from high availability, select a mode other than No redundancy and failure domain other than Disk.

  4. On Summary, review the volume details. You can go back to change them if necessary. Click Create.
