Changing the underlying AWS disk for a volume

You can change the underlying AWS disk that a volume uses to provide storage. For example, if higher performance is needed, you can change from a Throughput Optimized HDD to a General Purpose SSD.


  1. In the Volumes tab, place your mouse cursor over the volume, select the menu icon, and then click Change Disk.
  2. Select the AWS disk type and click Change.


Cloud Manager moves the volume to an existing aggregate that uses the selected disk type or it creates a new aggregate for the volume.
