Your Project Storage Summary

Your Project Storage Summary

We think its a good idea to have a summary of all your project's storage volumes accessible with quick actions and the ability to create blank storage volumes, and volumes from snapshots on one easy to access page.

We also suggest you become familiar with how storage is managed via the machine summary page.

Lets get started

To get to this screen, click Storage in the left navigation panel shown below.

Here, you can see all storage volumes for your project in a quick summary view. You can also add blank storage volumes on this page.

Each card represents a single storage volume for this project.

The first section of the card shows information such as:

  • Storage Name
  • Size
  • Status
    • Available - Unattached project storage volume
    • Attached - Attached to a machine
  • Type
  • Monthly cost

Create a quick backup of your volume by clicking Quick Backup

Yes this warning again!
Deleting a storage volume in RONIN is permanent and irreversable!!! Make sure you snapshot any volumes that you need backups for, in case you need this volume back.

Creating a new (blank) volume

Click the Create New Volume icon in the bottom right corner to open up the new volume popup.

To create a new blank volume, enter in the following fields:

  • New volume name
  • Volume type
  • Size (in Gigabytes)

Then click CREATE DRIVE

You can now attach the blank volume via the machine summary screen.

Don't forget to read the following help cards once creating your new volumes

You just graduated from storage class. Easy right?!
