Customers occasionally request that a volume of a certain size be created for use via volume services in their space. Here’s how to handle those requests.

  1. Create a volume with the requested size and a hard-to-guess (ie random long) string for the name

  4. Set the isolation segment to volume-service-testing for their requested space
