You can increase the number of datastores available to a compute node in your VMware Integrated OpenStack deployment.

Adding a datastore causes the compute service to restart and might temporarily interrupt OpenStack services.


  1. In the vSphere Client, select Menu > VMware Integrated OpenStack.
  2. Click OpenStack Deployments and open the Manage tab.
  3. Open the Nova Storage tab and click the Add (plus sign) icon at the top left of the pane.
  4. Select the cluster to which you want to add a datastore and click Next.
  5. Select one or more datastores to add to the cluster and click Next.
  6. Review the proposed configuration and click Finish.


The storage capacity for the selected compute node increases accordingly with the size of the additional datastore.
