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 Web Client, select Home > VMware Integrated OpenStack.
  2. Open the Manage tab and click the Nova Storage tab.
  3. 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.
