Feature: Auto-tune Detached Block Volumes

Last month Oracle launched a great feature that helps with block volume costs.Let’s see a little bit about this feature.
 
You can now tune the performance of your detached volumes to the Lower Cost setting automatically. With this new capability, while your volumes stay in a detached state you can achieve significant cost savings.
 
When you’re ready to use them for your workloads, simply attach them, and their performance and cost are automatically and instantaneously adjusted to the performance setting you originally configured. 
 
When you enable this feature for your volumes, the volume is monitored and changed to the Lower Cost performance option automatically when it is disconnected and this setting is maintained until you reconnect it. This feature now comes integrated with the storage platform. You can take advantage of this with a click on the console or using a command line option in the CLI for each of your volumes.
 
Auto-tune for detached volumes capability is generally available for all existing and new boot and block volumes in all regions globally, on the Console, and through CLI, SDK, API, and Terraform.
 

 

Enabling and Managing Auto-tune for Detached Volumes

Enabling the auto-tune feature for detached volumes is straightforward with a click in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console.
To enable auto-tune for a volume, on the Block Volume Details screen of the Console, click Edit and slide the Auto-Tune Performance setting to On for the volume. The Edit dialog window is also revised as part of this feature update.When you enable this feature for your volumes, the volume is monitored and changed to the Lower Cost performance option automatically when it is disconnected, and maintained in this setting until you reconnect it. This feature now comes integrated with the storage platform. You can take advantage of this with a click on the console or using a command line option in the CLI for each of your volumes.

 

When the Auto-Tune Performance is set to On for a detached volume, the auto-tuning takes effect after 24 hours. After that, if the volume is still detached, its performance and cost is lowered to the Lower Cost setting automatically.
After Auto-Tune is applied
After 24 hours
When the volume is attached again, its performance is set to the Default Performance setting immediately and automatically.
