Horizon Mirage provides multiple storage volume support to help manage volume congestion.

Each storage volume can contain base layers, app layers, and CVDs. CVDs are assigned to a storage volume when they are created. The storage volumes must be shared by the servers where Network-attached storage (NAS) permissions must be in place.

You can perform the following actions in the Horizon Mirage Web Manager:

Block a volume

Unblock a volume

You can block a storage volume to prevent it from being used when new CVDs or base layers are being created.

You can unblock a volume that is currently blocked. The volume can then accept new CVDs and base layers and existing data can be updated.
