Storage(tick)
  • Volumes are EBS disks. Users can onboard and create volumes, and attach them to VMs as auxiliary disks
    • After users detach auxiliary disks from VMs, the synchronization process will make them available in the virtual datacenter
    • Users can move disks between virtual datacenters and release them to the region
    • When users undeploy or delete a VM, the synchronization process will make auxiliary disks available in the virtual datacenter
  • Onboarding a VM with delete on termination disks
    • When you undeploy or delete the VM, the platform will destroy these disks.
    • When you detach the disks from the deployed VM, the platform will synchronize them as volumes in the virtual datacenter
  • EBS Encryption
    • You can create encrypted disks in the platform. If your AWS account has encryption set as default, all EBS disks will be created with encryption
    • The platform will use encryption when you create an instance template of an encrypted disk, and when you create a VM from this template
