Configure a Volume on a Compute Instance: To use a Volume on a Compute Instance, it needs to first be configured by creating a file system and mounting the device.
Resize a Volume: Increase the size of a Block Storage Volume after it has been created.
Transfer a Volume to a Different Compute Instance: Move a Block Storage Volume to a different Compute Instance within the same data center.
