While it is convenient to create desired volumes while creating a target group, you can also do this at any time afterwards.
- A clear understanding of the concept Storage policies.
- A target group is created, as described in Creating target groups.
To create a volume
- Open Storage services > Block storage > Volumes, and then click Create volume. A wizard will open.
On Name and size, enter a volume name and specify a size in gigabytes. Note that volumes can be extended later but not shrunk.
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.
- On Summary, review the volume details. You can go back to change them if necessary. Click Create.
