Smaller minimum size for block storage
I am investigating moving all my services from regular Linodes to LKE. One area where things don't look very good is the cost.
I am currently using local disks on my Linodes. Switching to block storage for persistent volumes is a given, I guess, and it will drive up the costs, but the main problem is fragmentation. I am not able to create a 100 GB volume and split it amongst my applications, but rather I must allocate volumes individually. Most of my applications require far less than 10 GB of storage per volume, so I would end up paying a disproportionate amount for what storage I'm actually using.
Is there a plan to reduce the minimum size for block storage? Please add my vote to a such a feature request, if it exists.
ReadWriteMany semantics might help, but I guess that's a much harder problem.
Hi @rombert — I've passed along your feedback and made note of it in our internal tracking for this feature request.
Alternatively, supporting ReadWriteMany semantics might help, but I guess that's a much harder problem.
Due to limitations with our Block Storage service, we don’t have any current plans to support ReadWriteMany for PeristentVolumes deployed on Linode Block Storage.
