Is there a maximum number of disks a linode can have?


My understanding is that new disks can be created in a linode if the instance's available storage is greater than the total allocated to existing disks.

Is there a limit (hard or practically advisable) to the number of disks that can be created given enough unallocated storage is available?

Thank you.

You can have up to 8 block devices on your Linode. We cover this info in our Managing Configuration Profiles on a Linode guide.
