Cloning volumes

If you need an instantaneous copy of your data without using a lot of disk space, you can create a clone of an existing volume. The cloned volume is a writable, point-in-time copy that is space-efficient because it uses a small amount of space for metadata, and then only consumes additional space as data is changed or added.


  1. In the Volumes tab, place your mouse cursor over the volume, select the menu icon, and then click Clone.
  2. Modify the name of the cloned volume, if needed, and then click Clone.


Cloud Manager creates a new volume that is a clone of an existing volume.
