Step 4. Specify Object Storage Settings

At the Bucket step of the wizard, specify the bucket and folder that will be used to store data:

  1. In the Data center region drop-down list, select a region.
  2. In the Bucket drop-down list, select a bucket.

Make sure that the bucket where you want to store your backup data was created in advance.

  1. In the Select Folder field, select a cloud folder to which you want to map your object storage repository.

To select a folder, click Browse and either select an existing folder or create a new one by clicking New Folder.

To define a soft limit that can be exceeded temporarily for your object storage consumption, select the Limit object storage consumption to check box and provide the value in TB or PB.

If you plan to access your backup data rarely, on average once per month or less, select the Use nearline storage class check box. For more information about Google Cloud storage classes, see this Google article.
