To create a file system in NAS, follow these steps:

  1. Log on to the NAS console.
  2. Click Create File System in the upper right corner.
    Note
    • The maximum storage capacity of a file system is 1 PB for the SSD performance type and 10 PB for the capacity type. Fees are charged based on the actual usage.
    • Each account can create up to 10 file systems.
  3. On the Create File System page, set the parameters.

    The parameters are described as follows:

    • Region: Select the region where you want to create the file system.
      Note A file system or computing node in a region cannot communicate with a file system or computing node in another region.
    • Storage Type: You can select SSD performance-type or Capacity-type.
    • Protocol Type: You can select NFS (including NFSv3 and NFSv4) or SMB (2.0 and later).

      The NFS protocol and SMB protocol apply to ECS instances in Linux and Windows separately for file sharing.

    • Zone: You can view all zones in the selected region in the drop-down list.
      Note
      • A file system or computing node in a zone can communicate with a file system or computing node in a different zone but of the same region.
      • To reduce cross-zone latency, we recommend that you select the zone of the ECS instance where you want to mount your file system.
  4. Click OK.
