Object Storage Repository

An object storage repository is a repository intended for long-term data storage and based on either a cloud solution or an S3 compatible storage solution.

  • Amazon S3, Amazon S3 Glacier and AWS Snowball Edge

  • In Scale-Out Backup Repository as a part of Capacity Tier. Capacity tier of scale-out backup repository allows to offload existing backup data directly to cloud-based object storage such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure Blob storage, Google Cloud Storage, and IBM Cloud Object Storage, or using on-premises S3 compatible devices. For more information, see Capacity Tier.
  • In Scale-Out Backup Repository as a part of Archive Tier. Archive tier of scale-out backup repository allows to transport infrequently accessed data from the capacity tier for archive storage. For more information, see Archive Tier.
