Hi there,

I’m a Kubernetes noob looking to practice. I was reading through your volume documentation here

I noticed that there is a limit of 7 volumes attached to any single droplet. Does this limit apply to droplets managed by Kubernetes? For example, if I am running a multi-tenant cluster with 3 nodes does that mean I’m limited to 21 volumes?

Hi @smithmilner

Yes, you are right this limitation is applicable for worker node in the DOKS cluster also. You can have a look into the DOKS limits here

While you are using 3 worker nodes, you can use max up to 21 volumes.

I hope it helps.
