Feature Request: Resize disk without rebooting
Resizing disks at linode require a reboot before the new size is detected properly. Other cloud providers allow this to happen without a machine reboot, which is exceptionally helpful for running databases that need to have the drive expanded without restarting.
Is it possible to implement this at Linode?
Hey, @paladiamors! A resized Linode is powered off and migrated to a different physical host within the same data center. That being said, I can understand how beneficial it could be to have a resize happen without any downtime. I've included your request in our internal tracker for future consideration.
Let us know if you have any additional feature requests!
