Storage Summary Help

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.

The first section of the card shows information such as:

You can also edit the name of the volume by clicking the pencil icon.

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.

Hover over the red plus circle at the bottom right of your screen to see two actions - Create Volume From Snapshot and Create New Volume.
