We are using different compute and storage resources on IBM Cloud.
Unfortunately SAN based Storage for VSI's as well as Performance/Endurance storage, periodically impacted by high Network utilization, and our Production systems freezing.
That is why we prefer VSI's with local discs for heavily loaded production systems.
Main problem are following:
Due to limitations above, almost impossible to extend secondary local disk from 100 to 200 GB without of full data loss.
What we need:
We need functionality on the portal or API which simplify secondary local storage increase, for example ability to order from image VSI with local disks which capacity higher then initial size on VM used for image creation.
