Next, hover over 'Configure' and click ‘Volumes’. 



Click ‘Create Volume’ to configure a volume to be used by one of your servers.




On the ‘General’ tab, specify the following:

  • Name - Type a name.
  • Type - Specify the application that will be using the volume from the dropdown list. 
  • Cloud Configuration - Choose the cloud configuration to be used for this volume from the drop-down list.
  • Access Type - Specify ‘Read-Write’ for the volume access type.
  • Capacity - Specify the capacity of the volume. The maximum allowable value is 102,400 GB.
  • Online - Ensure ‘Online’ is checked. The volumes need to be taken offline should you wish to delete a volume group or an associated volume.
  • Enable Monitoring - Click the checkbox next to ‘Enable Monitoring’ if you wish to have reports that show data only from statistics collected against this individual volume as described above in the cloud configurations section.   
  • Daily CloudSnap - This option enabled by default will automatically create a volume group. The volume group will also have an associated policy that will execute daily and generate a Cloud Snapshot of the data associated with this volume.


Next, click the ‘Security’ tab. Perform the following steps to manage the access control records associated with this volume:




  • Click the ‘Add new record’ button
  • Specify the access control record to allow access to the volume. 
  • Leave the ‘Preferred LUN’ at ‘No Preference’, unless you need to explicitly set the LUN value used by the volume (this value will be used unless there is a conflict with another volume). 
  • Click the green checkmark next to the access control record that you selected.
  • Finally click the ‘Save’ button to complete the volume creation.
