3. Creating the storage cluster

To create the storage cluster, do the following:

  1. Open the Infrastructure > Nodes screen, and then click Create storage cluster.
  2. (Optional) To configure the disk roles or node location, click the cogwheel icon.
  3. Type a name for the cluster. It may only contain Latin letters (a-z, A-Z), numbers (0-9), and hyphens (“-“).
  4. Enable encryption, if required.
  5. Click Create.

You can monitor cluster creation on the Infrastructure > Nodes screen. The creation might take some time, depending on the number of disks to be configured. Once the automatic configuration is complete, the cluster is created.
