    Cloud Disk Purchase Channels

    Tencent Cloud provides two ways for you to purchase cloud disks, either through the console or via API.

    Purchasing in the console

    1. Log in to the CBS console, select a region, and click Create.
    2. Configure the cloud disk type and capacity.
    3. Set Billing Mode. If you select Monthly Subscription, you need to set the Purchase Validity Period.
    4. After confirming the order, make the payment using account balance, online banking, WeChat Pay, or QQ Wallet.
    5. The cloud disk is created immediately after the order payment. Cloud disk can be used after being mounted and initialized.

    Using snapshots to purchase through the console

    If you want to save the snapshot data of a data disk to a new disk by default, you can use a snapshot to create a cloud disk on the Snapshot List page. You can also configure the Snapshots parameter to specify a snapshot for cloud disk creation when purchasing a cloud disk in the console.

    1. Go to the Snapshot List page.
    2. On the row of the target snapshot, select More > Create Cloud Disk.
    3. Configure the cloud disk type and capacity.
      Note

      When you create a cloud disk with a snapshot, the disk capacity cannot be smaller than that of the snapshot. If you don't specify the capacity of the cloud disk, the capacity is equal to that of the snapshot by default.

    4. Set Billing Mode. If you select Monthly Subscription, you need to set the Purchase Validity Period.
    5. After confirming the order, make the payment using account balance, online banking, WeChat Pay, or QQ Wallet.
    6. The cloud disk is created immediately after the order payment. Cloud disk can be used after being mounted and initialized.
