A volume is a type of virtual hard drive storage for data that is used or generated while using a running instance. You can attach a volume to one or more running instances. After you are finished using the instance, you can save your data, and then unmount and detach the volume for later use.
You also can use iRODS for volumes. Volumes are local-based and somewhat more volatile than network-based iRODS. For more information on using iRODS, please go to Manage Data on the CyVerse website.
Before you begin
Before you begin, you may want to google man page on mount for more information on mounting file systems on devices.
You also may want to watch a video about interactions with volumes. Please be aware that this video has no sound.
