Tip: This step must be common to ALL instances. It is recommended to add a second disk in order to ease backup policies, snapshot management, etc.
On the "Root" volume line, uncheck the Delete on
Attention: If left checked, this option will delete all data present on the disk, which can lead to serious damages.
- Click Add New Volume to add more storage.
Select EBS as Volume Type.
The EBS volume type allows users to modify their storage size at will in the future.
Adjust the Size (GiB) of the new volume.
We recommend "8" for the servers hosting MongoDB environment. The final size of this second disk is the responsibility of the customer, but it can be modified at will.
