DESCRIPTION
For requests to increase quotas (CPU, RAM, Instance Count, Floating IPs, Storage) for your Cloud-VPS project. If you do not currently have a project and want to request one go to Cloud-VPS (Project-requests).
Before you request an increase
  1. Please confirm you have exhausted your current quota. You can find this in your project page on Horizon after logging in.
  2. If you are requesting a floating ip (external public IP address) increase ensure that you actually need it. If you just want to expose an HTTP / HTTPS webservice to the external world usually the Proxy service can be used.
  3. Check your running instances to see if there are any that should be deleted, reused or recreated to be smaller. We will review capacity used to understand quota increase needs.
  4. If a custom instance flavor (ram:cpu:disk ratio) would allow you to use resources more efficiently, include this in your request. This does not mean we will be able to create new flavors for everyone.
Requesting an increase
Create a task with the following information:
Project Name: <projectname> Type of quota increase requested: <cpu/ram/disk/instance count/floating ip> Amount of quota increase: <Something like: enough create one large instance> Reason: <Why is this quota increase required?>
Process
Requests are processed by the Cloud Services team during the team meeting every Wednesday (15:00 UTC) that the meeting is held. This schedule may be effected by holidays, conferences, or other unavailability. Requests can be granted when approved by a quorum of at least two WMCS team members.

So, you currently have 40GB quota for cinder volumes. You are requesting a 30GB bump, to use a total of 70GB.

Hi there, Sorry for the delay, I had to be unexpectedly out of the office for the last few weeks. I'm back in and working on this now. We'll need the RAM quota increased as well for us to test the higher core counts with the existing flavors. Could we get the ram pool for our project temporarily bumped to 32GB?

@aborrero Hi! I'm sorry. I wasn't clear (I don't file these requests that often). I requested 20GB increase (to 36GB), not 4GB increase (to 20GB). My bad, I should have been clearer. As I said in the reasoning, I know it's a lot but the problem is that after 16GB RAM in VMs, the next available one in the flavors is 36GB. I don't think I would use all of it so overprovisioning should be fine for me. Sorry again for the confusion.
