Assigning a storage class to Amazon cloud storage
In NetBackup, you can assign a storage class to cloud storage while you configure a new storage server.
To assign a storage class
- In the NetBackup Administration Console > Cloud Storage Configuration wizard, select Amazon.
- On the Add Storage Server screen, specify the Amazon S3 configuration details such as, service host, storage server name, and access details.
- Select the preferred storage class and click Next. Veritas recommends that you do not modify the storage class of a cloud storage server after you have assigned it.
Prior to NetBackup 8.1.1, in the Advanced Server Configuration screen, the x-amz-storage-class header displayed the Amazon S3 storage classes that NetBackup supports.
AMZ:STORAGE_CLASS lists the storage class in the storage server properties dialog box.
- Configure a new disk pool.
Veritas recommends that you use different buckets for different storage classes.
- Configure a new storage unit by accessing NetBackup Administration Console > NetBackup Management > Storage > Storage Units.
- Modify the existing policy or SLP (or create new policy or SLP) to use the new storage unit by accessing the respective user interfaces:
To access policy, do the following: In the NetBackup Administration Console, expand NetBackup Management, and click Policies.
To access SLP, do the following: In the NetBackup Administration Console, expand NetBackup Management, expand Storage, and click Storage Life Cycle Policies.
