Storage on demand

This document presents the non-Kubernetes method of provisioning volumes on-demand. Please refer to the Dynamic Provisioning of PVCs page if you are running Portworx on Kubernetes.

Portworx provides an important feature that enables applications to have storage provisioned on demand, rather than requiring storage to be pre-provisioned.

The feature is also referred to as inline volume creation. For more information, click here and see the section Inline volume spec.

Using this feature can be seen in the above example in the volumes clause. Note that all relevant Portworx volume metadata can be specified through this mechanism.
