Capacity Tier

Capacity tier is an additional tier of storage that can be attached to a scale-out backup repository. Applicable data from the scale-out backup repository performance extents can be transported to the capacity tier for long-term storage.  

This feature is most useful if:

  • You are running out of storage space.
  • Your organization policies allow you to store only a certain amount of data on your extents, while the outdated data should be stored elsewhere.
  • You seek to store data on several sites to ensure its safety in case of a disaster.

With capacity tier you can:

The capacity tier consists of only one capacity extent. The capacity extent can be either cloud-based object storage repository or on-premises object storage repository, such as:

  • S3-compatible object storage repository
  • Amazon S3
  • Microsoft Azure Blob Storage
  • Microsoft Azure Data Box
  • IBM Cloud Object Storage

The capacity extent is displayed in the scale-out backup repository wizard, on the Add Capacity Tier step.  

Capacity Tier Note:

Before you start using the capacity tier, make sure to check the pricing plans of your cloud storage provider to avoid additional costs for offloading and downloading backup data.
