In this tutorial, you will learn how to provision replicated StorageOS volumes for high availability.

High availability

Step 1 of 5

Working with labels

In this scenario you will provision replicated volumes on a three node StorageOS cluster. Open terminals on the second and third host:

ssh [email protected] ssh [email protected]

Labels are a mechanism for applying metadata to StorageOS objects. You can use them to annotate or organise your volumes in any way that makes sense for your organization or app.

A label is a key-value pair that is stored as a string.

Create a volume expected to run in a production environment:

storageos volume create --label env=prod testvol

Inspect the volume to see the labels:

storageos volume inspect default/testvol
