Cloud Volumes Service (CVS) on AWS Volume OptionsΒΆ

Volume create options for the CVS on AWS driver:

  • size - the size of the volume, defaults to 100 GB
  • serviceLevel - the CVS service level of the volume, defaults to standard. Valid values are standard, premium, and extreme.
  • snapshotReserve - this will set the snapshot reserve to the desired percentage. The default is no value, meaning CVS will select the snapshot reserve (usually 0%).

Using these options during the docker volume create operation is super simple, just provide the option and the value using the -o operator during the CLI operation. These override any equivalent values from the JSON configuration file.

# create a 200GiB volume
docker volume create -d netapp --name demo -o size=200G

# create a 500GiB premium volume
docker volume create -d netapp --name demo -o size=500G -o serviceLevel=premium

The minimum volume size is 100 GB.
