We think it's 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
- Available - Unattached project storage volume
- Attached - Attached to a machine
- Monthly cost
Create a quick backup of your volume by clicking Quick Backup
To resize a drive, click the three dots in the top right corner:
If a volume is attached, detach / delete the volume from it's machine from the same menu:
Yes this warning again!
Deleting a storage volume in RONIN is permanent and irreversible!!! 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
Linux - see Making storage available in Linux
Windows - see Making storage available in Windows
You just graduated from storage class. Easy right?!
