Region where VPS-HDD is available:
Images: Ubuntu 14.04, Debian 7, Fedora 20, CentOS 7
Flavors: vps-hdd-1000, vps-hdd-2000, vps-hdd-4000
When subscribing to the lab, if you go to the openstack dashboard you will also be presented some images related to the armcloud lab (ubuntu-14.04-aarch64), they are not intended (and cannot) be used for vps-hdd. If you still want to use them, subscribe to the arm lab first
When spawning your vps-hdd you have two disks attached to the virtual machines: one small 10G one containing the rootfs (vda), and the big volume (vdb), with a capacity matching to the flavor you chose (1T, 2T or 4T). By default we have formatted it in ext4 and mounted it on /home. Nothing prevents you from changing this if you want to.
When you rebuild your instance (nova rebuild, or through the openstack dahsboard), only the primary disk content is restored. The secondary disk content will be preserved. Only if you terminate/destroy the instance will it be erased
