  • Your organization policies allow you to store only a certain amount of data on your extents, while the outdated data should be stored elsewhere.

Capacity Tier expands the scale-out backup repository abilities and allows you to store backup data in cloud-based object storage or S3-compatible on-premises storage, such as:

  • S3-compatible devices
  • Amazon S3
  • Microsoft Azure Blob Storage
  • Microsoft Azure Data Box devices
  • IBM Cloud Object Storage
