Why choose Gandi for your hosting service?
Resize on the fly
Change the size of a disk without rebooting the server
With Gandi's cloud VPS servers, you can resize your disks on the fly, without needing to stop the server or unmount the disk, in just a few seconds. It is the disk that is resized and not the file system. And if you partitioned your disk, only the most recent partition will be resized.
Also, disks are created by default without partitions at Gandi, because they perform much better and are more flexible, notably with regards to the administration of options tied to the disk (resizing, snapshots, copy, etc.).
