Volume Service


Awanio volume service manages storage media used in the Compute service.

You can see list of volumes created, whether it is boot type or external type (additional storage for VM).

Manage Volume

In Volume page you can:

  • View all volume disk data and display the VM where the volume is attached (if not attached to any VM, it will be empty).
  • Search volume data by name
  • Create new volume
  • Rename volume
  • Attach/detach volume to/from VM instances
  • Delete volume data. Volumes cannot be deleted if they are attached to a VM.

There are three types of volumes:

  • Boot, default storage attached to VM
  • External, additional storage, created manually in the Volume page or added during VM creation.
  • Boot-snapshot, restored backup storage

Attach/detach volume to/from VM instances

Volume can be attached to VM or detached from VM, whether it is running or stopped. A VM can only have one attached additional storage.

Upsize Volume

Volume capacity can be increased. You can choose another plan with a higher capacity to upsize the volume.
