Step 4: Add Storage

Q-Cloud Protect AMIs include pre-configured storage to meet minimum operation requirements. You can configure additional storage for an instance on Step 4: Add Storage of the Launch Instance Wizard by increasing the amount of storage allocated to the EBS volume. From this page, you can also review the instance's current storage configuration.

Storage Recommendations

The following information provides our recommendations for configuring additional storage for your Q-Cloud Protect instance.

GB versus GiB

Although the Q-Cloud Protect appliance reports measurements in units of MB, GB, and TB, AWS reports measurements in units of MiB, GiB, and TiB. When calculating the EBS volume's storage capacity, you will need to convert measurements between the cloud appliance and AWS interfaces, as appropriate.

To convert GB to GiB, multiply by .93.

GB x .93 = GiB
