Cloud computing is the on demand availability of computer system resources, especially data storage and computing power, without direct active management by the user. I’m using AWS for about 3 years now. The reason I used Amazon Web Service is because it very easy to use. You can fire up an instance in minutes. I have been using SSD volume storage as it very fast and versatile. First year until now I’m only provision for 8Gb. Now my volume storage is full so I need to extend my storage volume.
So, I went to AWS Console and click at volume storage and increase it 16GB. Now after waiting for about 30minutes and so it was ready. Now I can extend my volume. There are 2 steps in increasing the volume. After edit the configuration in AWS Console now I have to use command in Linux to extend it. I use
df -aH to check the volume. It will stay 8Gb unless I ran command
sudo growpart /dev/xvda 1. Now I’m finally able to see my partition increase in size from 8GB to 16GB. It very easy and simple. I’m using Ubuntu as my operating system.
