Before You Begin

Before you add a scale-out backup repository to the backup infrastructure, check the following prerequisites:

  • An object storage repository cannot be added as part of two or more different scale-out backup repositories at the same time.
  • If the selected object storage contains offloaded backup data, you will be offered to synchronize this data with your performance extents.

For more information, see Synchronizing Capacity Tier Data.

  • Object storage that contains imported backups cannot be added as a capacity extent.

For more information, see Importing Object Storage Backups.

  • You cannot add the same object storage repository as the performance extent and capacity extent.
  • You cannot use object storage of different providers in the same type of tier.
  • You cannot use the object storage repository and the backup repositories in performance tier simultaneously.
