Managing full Storage Nodes

As Storage Nodes reach capacity, you must be expand the StorageGRID Webscale system through the addition of new storage. There are two options available when considering how to increase storage capacity: adding Storage Nodes and adding storage volumes.

Adding Storage Nodes

You can increase storage capacity by adding Storage Nodes. Careful consideration of currently active ILM rules and capacity requirement must be taken when adding storage. For more information about how to add storage volumes and Storage Nodes, see the Expansion Guide.

Adding storage volumes

Each Storage Node supports a maximum of 16 storage volumes. If a Storage Node includes fewer than 16 storage volumes, you can increase its capacity by adding storage volumes up to the maximum of 16.
