Summary
Learn how to do erase provisioning (format-erase encryption) or preserve provisioning (in-place encryption) in SecureCloud.
Details
Public
In previous versions of SecureCloud, when you encrypt a data volume SecureCloud erases all the data from the volume before encryption. SecureCloud 3.5 uses in-place encryption which preserves the data during encryption.
In SecureCloud 3.6, you can choose the method of encryption: in-place encryption or format-erasing encryption. Format-erasing encryption is optional, however, it may be faster and easier to use.
Erase provisioning (Format-erasing encryption)
  1. On the SecureCloud console, click Inventory.
  2. Select the computer that you want to encrypt.
  3. In the Edit Computer page, select the device you want to do the format-erasing provisioning, and then click the Encrypt button.
    A pop-up window appears that will let you choose the type of encryption.
  4. Select Erase. Choose a file system and mount point, and then click Encrypt.
  5. Wait for the encryption to be successful.
Preserve provisioning (In-place encryption)
  1. On the SecureCloud console, click Inventory.
  2. Select the computer that you want to encrypt.
  3. In the Edit Computer page, select the device you want to do the format-erasing provisioning, and then click the Encrypt button.
    A pop-up window appears that will let you choose the type of encryption.
  4. Select Preserve. You may choose a file system and mount point, and then click Encrypt.
  5. Wait for the encryption to be successful.
