LowEndBoxTV: Working with BuyVM Slabs

Tags: , , , , , Date/Time: May 3, 2021 @ 12:00 am, by raindog308

Budget hosting provider BuyVM offers block storage disks called “slabs”.

In this video, we walk you through provisioning and setting up these flexible, movable disks, using both Stallion (BuyVM’s control panel) and the Linux command line, using a generic Debian VM.

We’ll also setup the “slab” to mount automatically at boot time.

Normally you find this feature only in larger cloud hosting providers, so it’s pretty cool to see this in one one of cheap vps providers.  Using block storage, you have tremendous flexibility to move storage around, expand storage, and really customize your VM for your own needs, instead of being locked into “standard T-shirt sizes” as you find with most hosts.

You might also enjoy reading our recent article on BuyVM.
