Article summary

(If you to create the volume before the pod/application is ready, or if need zone resiliency is applied, visit the “Advanced” section)

Be sure to complete the prerequisites, before beginning the configuration detailed below.

  1. Go to QUICK START> Add Node and click on Kubernetes.

  1. Follow the displayed instructions. Copy the commands to your bash console, to install a Volumez connector on your node. All available nodes will be listed in the table below. Then, click on finish.

  1. Go to QUICK START> Add Volume and click on Create PVC. Give the PVC a name, define the volume size and select the associated Policy.

  1. Depending on the values that you enter, the proposed pricing information will be calculated and displayed, and a YAML file will be generated for you to copy to your Kubernetes cluster.

Use the YAML file in your Kubectl by using the apply -f command.

The PVC has now been created. As soon as the first Application to be served is identified, the CSI will allocate the PV (as a result of the VolumeBindingMode = WaitForFirstConsumer).

For Advanced configurations and more information on how to control the VolumeBindingMode advanced flows, see Advanced.


  • In Auto-Provisioned mode Volumez CSI will create media nodes outside of the cluster, not as part of the cluster NodeGroups.

  • A Boolean flag named AutoProvisionedMode will be passed as a parameter in the StorageClass.yaml to enable the feature
