Microsoft Azure cloud storage provider options
Figure: Cloud Storage Server Configuration Wizard panel for Microsoft Azure shows the Cloud Storage Configuration Wizard panel for Microsoft Azure cloud storage.
Table: Microsoft Azure storage server configuration options describes the storage server configuration options for Microsoft Azure.
Table: Microsoft Azure storage server configuration options
Service host is the host name of the cloud service end point of Microsoft Azure.
The Service host drop-down list displays part of the service host URL that also comprises Storage Account.
Example of a service host URL:
Based on the region where you have created your storage account - default or China - you should select the service host from the drop-down list.
Displays the default Azure storage server, which is my-azure. You can select a storage server other than the default one.
The drop-down list displays only those names that are available for use.
You can type a different storage server name in the drop-down list, which can be a logical name for the cloud storage. You can create multiple storage servers with different names that refer to the same physical service host for Azure. If there are no names available in the list, you can create a new storage server name by typing the name in the drop-down list.
Veritas recommends that a storage server name that you add while configuring an Azure cloud storage should be a logical name and should not match a physical host name. For example: While you add an Azure storage server, avoid using names like 'azure.com' or 'azure123.com'. These servers may be physical hosts, which can cause failures during cloud storage configuration. Instead, use storage server names like 'azure1' or 'azureserver1' and so on.
This option is grayed out if any of the following cases are true:
See the NetBackup compatibility lists for support information:
For information about CloudCatalyst, see the NetBackup Deduplication Guide
For example: /space/mnt/esfs
The deduplicated data is written to this local cache directory before it is uploaded to the cloud. The larger the cache, the more likely that NetBackup can service requests locally, avoiding cloud access to read and write.
Select a NetBackup media server from the drop-down list.
Only the media servers that conform to the requirements for cloud storage appear in the drop-down list. The requirements are described in the following topic:
The host that you select queries the storage vendor's network for its capabilities and for the available storage. The media server also becomes a data mover for your backups and restores.
Enter the storage account that you want to use for your cloud backups.
For more information about Microsoft Azure storage service, refer to the Microsoft Azure documentation.
Create the storage account using the following URL:
Enter your Azure access key. You can enter the primary access key or the secondary access key. It must be 100 or fewer characters.
Refer to the following URL for the access key:
