Unmanaged Cloud server: increasing the volume for data storage
By default, unmanaged Cloud Servers are supplied with two volumes:
- 1 volume for the operating system of your choice (/dev/vda)
- 1 volume for storing your data (/dev /vdb)
The volume for data storage (/dev/vdb) must be formatted, then mounted by the customer.
1. SSH commands to format the storage volume
If you choose XFS for example, it is necessary to format the volume using the following SSH command:
sudo mkfs.xfs -f /dev/vdb
And if you choose EXT4:
sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/vdb
If necessary, you can format the volume with a different file system supported by your distribution.
2. SSH commands for mounting the storage volume
sudo mount /dev/vdb point_de_montage
To mount the data volume in the /home directory of your Cloud Server, the command to execute is as follows:
sudo mount /dev/vdb /home
