Veritas is happy to announce launch support for Seagate Lyve Cloud with NetBackup. I thought I would take this time, to review some best practices to quickly get up and running with enterprise-grade deduplication to Seagate Lyve Cloud.
Here’s what you need to get started:
It’s easy to add a cloud tier to your existing MSDP storage server, in just a few minutes, and creating a Seagate Lyve Cloud account is a simple three-step process.
Configuring Lyve Cloud
It is assumed that a Lyve Cloud account has been created and configured. This consists of the following steps:
Note: You must have at least one bucket with at least one associated permission before you can establish the credentials needed to add Lyve Cloud, as a Storage Tier in NetBackup.
Adding a Seagate Lyve Cloud Tier to MSDP
Step 1: Add Disk Pool
Go to the “Storage” section of the webUI, then under disk pools, select “Add” in the upper right-hand corner.
Step 1: Enter pool name, description, and then click next.
Step 2: Add Volume
Step 2: Enter volume name, select Seagate Lyve Cloud as the provider, and Enter Access Key & Secret Key created in Lyve Storage Account
Step 3: Select or Create Bucket
Step 3: Select or add new bucket
Keep in mind that bucket names need to be all lowercase with no spaces.
The wizard will walk you through the remaining step of creating a storage unit. Once the storage unit is created, it can be used as a target for backups and duplication jobs.
