Managing full Storage Nodes

As Storage Nodes reach capacity, you must expand the StorageGRID system through the addition of new storage. There are two options available: adding storage volumes and adding Storage Nodes.

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. See the instructions for expanding StorageGRID system.

Adding Storage Nodes

You can increase storage capacity by adding Storage Nodes. Careful consideration of currently active ILM rules and capacity requirements must be taken when adding storage. See the instructions for expanding a StorageGRID system.
