Volume Types shows the types of permanent storage Volumes. You cannot create or edit the Volume Types from the Dashboard, that is setup previously for you, and is dependent upon the actual cloud. That is, this information is read-only, but you will be able to select the correct Volume Type when creating new Volumes. Click the Name hyperlink to see additional Volume Type details.


  • Name - Name of the Volume Type. For example: Small, Medium, Large, Very Small, and Very Large.

More detailed Volume Type information is displayed from the Volume Types show page, grouped together by the following:

  • Info - General information. In addition to the Resource UID and size, a lengthier Description is included here.
  • Cloud specific Info - Cloud specific information such as if the Volume Type is mirrored or not, and what the Domain is. All of this information is passed to us from the cloud and simply displayed here. Hence, you cannot edit this information. For further information on any of these fields you should consult the documentation for your cloud infrastructure.
  • Timestamps - Date/timestamp when the Volume Type was created and updated at.
