Navigate to Project > Volumes

Click Create Volume on the right

Give your new volume a name (i.e. volumetest1) and add a description

Select the Volume Source from the dropdown menu, depending on the type of volume you wish to make

Select Image, then select Cirros 0.5.1 from the dropdown menu

Select the size of the volume, for our bootable volume example, set *Size (GiB) to 10, which is the minimum required for a Linux bootable volume

Set the Availability Zone and Group that the volume belongs to (in the case of our example, make sure Group is set to No group)
