  4. When the Create NAS volume page is displayed, proceed with the following steps in order.

1. Creating a volume

  1. Select the zone where the NAS volume will be created.

  2. Enter the NAS volume name and volume capacity.

    • You can enter 3 to 20 characters as the volume name using alphabets, numbers, or a combination of alphabets and numbers.
    • A customer identification number starting with "n" is automatically generated before the entered volume name to identify customers.
    • The default volume capacity ranges from 500 GB to 10,000 GB. Additions can be made in units of 100 GB.
  3. Select a protocol to apply to the NAS volume.

    • When NFS is selected, it can be mounted on the Linux server, such as CentOS and Ubuntu.
    • When CIFS is selected, it can be mounted on the Windows server.
  4. Select the volume encryption application status.

    • Volume encryption is applied to each volume and can only be set when the volume is first created.
    Note

    The volume encryption feature of the NAS can encrypt all data that is saved using software-based encryption technology at the volume level.

    • Unique encryption key: internally managed by the storage system (AES-256 algorithm is applied to each volume)
    • Encryption module (CryptoMod): compliant with FIPS-140-2 level 1
  5. Set the volume termination protection status.

  6. Click the [Next] button.

2. NFS access control setting

The setting page is displayed differently depending on the protocol selected while creating the volume. Complete settings according to the selected protocol and click [Next].

When the NFS protocol is selected

The NFS access control setting page is displayed. Select the server to allow access from the list of all servers, and then click the i-nas_right / i-nas_left button to add or delete.

  • ACL setting: Servers added to Read / Write have the read and write access permissions for the NAS volume.
  • ACL setting: Servers added to Read Only have the read access permission for the NAS volume.

When the CIFS protocol is selected

The CIFS authentication information setting page is displayed. Enter the ID and password.

Note
  • Setting authentication information is required only when a CIFS volume is first generated (once for each account). When creating a CIFS volume, check the set authentication server and click the [Next] button.
  • For more information on how to manage the CIFS authentication information, refer to CIFS authentication information change.

3. Final confirmation
