Cloud Server

A Linux VM can be assigned additional block storage while the virtual server is running, unless it is the boot drive. The capability is avaialble using the appropriate tools (for example parted, fdisk, resize2fs, mkfs, lvm). If you are using Windows, you can increase the stroage but this must be made available after provisioning additional storage using the Windows Disk Management. It is not possible to shrink disk sizes. Please note: before configuring more storages, a current and complete backup is strongly recommended.
