    • Friendly name: "Cloud Replicas"
    • Quota: 500 Gb

    To create a cloud storage:

    1. Run Find-VBRViDatastore to get the Veeam Cloud Datastore. Save it to the $datastore variable.
    2. Run New-VBRViCloudHWPlanDatastore using the $datastore variable. Specify the friendly name and the disk space quota. Save the storage to the $cloudreplicas variable.

    $datastore = Get-VBRServer -Name "ESXiHost" | Find-VBRViDatastore -Name "Veeam Cloud Datastore"

    $cloudreplicas = New-VBRViCloudHWPlanDatastore -Datastore $datastore -FriendlyName "Cloud Replicas" -Quota 500
