Requesting a Storage Appliance¶
To place an order for a storage appliance, select Storage from your Project's menu.
If you do not currently have any storage attached to your Project, the console displays "No Storage Yet". Click Request Storage.
Complete the request form to include the following:
- Contract Period - We currently offer 12 month and 36 month contracts. Price varies by contract duration, with longer periods having a lower monthly rate.
- Metro - Pick the Metro where the storage appliance will live.
- Plan Capacity - Select the type and size of the storage device you are reserving.
- Quantity - Select the number of specified appliances you want to reserve.
The Rate and Total fields will auto-fill with the rates for the selected Metro, Plan and Capacity, Quantity, and length of your reservation.
Click + to insert additional rows in the form if you want to add appliances in in different Metros, or with different plans and sizes. If you need to vary the reservation's length, you will have to submit a separate request.
Click Review Request. Carefully review the summary to ensure that you have included any terms and discounts that apply to your reservation. Select the check box to confirm the terms.
When you are ready, click Submit request.
When your request is submitted, you will get a confirmation email with your request details. Our team may reach out to you with questions or more information about your request.
When your Storage Appliance is ready for deployment, you will be notified by email with your plan details, including when your contract term will begin and notification that your storage appliance is ready to configure and use.
Your appliances will be listed on your Project's Storage page.
