» digitalocean_volume

Provides a DigitalOcean Block Storage volume which can be attached to a Droplet in order to provide expanded storage.

» Example Usage

resource "digitalocean_volume" "foobar" {
  region                  = "nyc1"
  name                    = "baz"
  size                    = 100
  initial_filesystem_type = "ext4"
  description             = "an example volume"

resource "digitalocean_droplet" "foobar" {
  name   = "baz"
  size   = "s-1vcpu-1gb"
  image  = "ubuntu-18-04-x64"
  region = "nyc1"

resource "digitalocean_volume_attachment" "foobar" {
  droplet_id = digitalocean_droplet.foobar.id
  volume_id  = digitalocean_volume.foobar.id

You can also create a volume from an existing snapshot.

data "digitalocean_volume_snapshot" "foobar" {
  name = "baz"

resource "digitalocean_volume" "foobar" {
  region      = "lon1"
  name        = "foo"
  size        = data.digitalocean_volume_snapshot.foobar.min_disk_size
  snapshot_id = data.digitalocean_volume_snapshot.foobar.id

» Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • region - (Required) The region that the block storage volume will be created in.
  • name - (Required) A name for the block storage volume. Must be lowercase and be composed only of numbers, letters and "-", up to a limit of 64 characters.
  • size - (Required) The size of the block storage volume in GiB. If updated, can only be expanded.
  • description - (Optional) A free-form text field up to a limit of 1024 bytes to describe a block storage volume.
  • snapshot_id - (Optional) The ID of an existing volume snapshot from which the new volume will be created. If supplied, the region and size will be limitied on creation to that of the referenced snapshot
  • initial_filesystem_type - (Optional) Initial filesystem type (xfs or ext4) for the block storage volume.
  • initial_filesystem_label - (Optional) Initial filesystem label for the block storage volume.
  • tags - (Optional) A list of the tags to be applied to this Volume.

» Attributes Reference
