Cloud disk purchase channels

Tencent Cloud provides two ways for you to purchase cloud disks, either through the console or via API.

Purchasing directly through the console

  1. Log in to CBS console and click Create.
  2. Configure the cloud disk type and capacity.
  3. Select a billing method.
  4. Confirm the order and then pay.
  5. The cloud disk is created immediately after the order payment. Cloud disk can be used after being mounted and initialized.

Using snapshots to purchase through the console

If you want to save the snapshot data of a data disk to a new disk by default, you can use snapshot to create a cloud disk in the Snapshot List. You can also configure the Snapshot parameter to specify the target snapshot for creating a disk when you purchase it separately through the console.
1.Go to Snapshot List on the console.
2. In the row of the target snapshot, select More>Create new disk.
3. Configure the cloud disk type and capacity.

When you use snapshot to create a cloud disk, the capacity size must not be smaller than the snapshot size. If you do not specify the cloud disk capacity, the capacity will be the same as that of the snapshot by default.
4. Select a billing method.
5. Confirm the order and then pay.
6. The cloud disk is created immediately after the order payment. Cloud disk can be used after being mounted and initialized.

Purchasing along with a CVM

  • You can purchase an elastic cloud disk by setting the Data Disk parameter when purchasing a CVM. For more information, see Creating Instances.

Purchasing through an API

You can use the CreateDisks API to create a cloud disk. For more information, see Creating cloud disks.

Purchase channels for local disks

Currently, local disks can only be purchased when you purchase a CVM. Standalone purchase is not supported. For more information, see Creating Instances.
