Troubleshooting - Disk size limits

We can cater to every requirement, yet there are some misconceptions about OnApp that are better laid out, so you can be sure it will be a good fit for you.

There is a 2TB limit to the capacity of a primary disk within OnApp. However, importantly, there is no limit to the size of a secondary disk.

The misconception that OnApp only supports 2TB of disk is false, you can create up to a 2TB boot disk, and an unlimited secondary/tertiary disk for every VM.

It often makes more sense to keep the boot disk small however, circa 50GB, then create a full-sized secondary disk, which can be mounted anywhere within the file system. 

If you'd like a disk larger than 2TB created and are unsure how, simply get in touch with our support team, who are always happy to help.
