Adding an archive tiering policy

Once an archive tier is created, you must enable an archive tiering policy for a container before that container can be archived to the cloud. Refer to Cloud tiering for more information.

Archive tiering is available for RDA, VTL, and Object container types.

To add an archive tiering policy

  1. In the navigation menu, click Containers. The Containers page is displayed.
  2. On the Containers pane, find the container you wish to archive. Click the ellipses icon, and click Enable Archive Tiering Policy.
  3. In the Enable Archive Tiering Policy page, enter the following information:
    • Archive Policyallows you to configure the amount of time that files must be idle before being sent to the cloud as well as how long to keep a local copy of the files.
    • Idle time before archive migration. Specifies the number of hours files must be idle before being archived.
    • On-Prem Retention Age. Specifies the number of hours files will be kept locally after they are archived.
  4. Click Advanced Options to view the following:
    • Folder Paths lets you to select files to be included or excluded based on their location.
      • Include. Only files in the listed directories will be included for replication.
      • Exclude. All files except those in the listed directories will be replicated.
    • File Extensions/Regular Expressions files can be included or excluded based on their extension or by regular expressions. Refer to Using regular expressions for more information.
      • Include. Only files with the specified extensions will be included for replication.
      • Exclude. All files except those with the specified extensions will be replicated.
      • Include Regular Expression. Includes only files matching the entered regular expression.

Deleting a container

There are two ways you can delete a container in QoreStor: through the user interface (GUI) or through the command line interface (CLI). The following procedures assume that the containers contain data.

Caution: Before deleting a container, you should first carefully consider whether you need to preserve the data in the container. Before deleting any QoreStor container that contains important data, you should take steps to preserve this data using another means of long-term retention. Once a container is deleted, the important data cannot be retrieved.

NOTE: When deleting a container that has Recycle Bin enabled, you cannot delete the container until Recycle Bin is empty. Be sure to delete or expire all backups from the container and wait for the files to expire from Recycle Bin. When Recycle Bin is empty and the container has no more files, delete the container.

Deleting a container through the GUI

NOTE: When there are files in the container, deleting the container through the GUI fails. If you want to delete a container and the files within it, use the Command Line Interface.

To delete a container through the GUI

  1. On the navigation menu, click Storage Groups. Select the storage group that contains the container you want to delete. (If you are only using the DefaultGroup storage group you do not need to select a group.)
  2. In the list of containers, select the container you want to delete, and then click the Delete icon.
  3. In the Warning dialog box, click Yes to confirm the deletion.

Deleting a container through the command line

To delete a container through the command line

  1. Access the QoreStor CLI. Refer to Using the QoreStor command line for more information.
  2. Delete a container with the command
    container --delete --name <name> [--delete_files]

    Refer to the QoreStor Command Line Reference Guide for more information.

Managing local storage

To organize your data, you can easily create storage groups and create containers within those storage groups on your QoreStor system. A storage group allows you to create separate storage policies for different data groups and the different capacities utilized on a single QoreStor. You can also create and organize storage groups for the different organizations in your enterprise, such as Engineering, Sales, Finance, and so on.

After initialization, QoreStor contains a single default storage group, named DefaultGroup.

Refer to these important notes about storage groups.

  • Only administrator users can create storage groups.
  • Data/containers cannot be moved between storage groups.
  • Deduplication is defined at the storage group level and is not global to the appliance.
  • Encryption is defined separately for each storage group.
  • Compression is defined separately for each storage group.
  • The system cleaner cannot be run on a single storage group; only at the system level.
  • Before you can delete a storage group, you must delete all containers contained in that storage group.
  • A filesystem scan can be run on a single storage group.

To view the Storage Groups page, on the left navigation menu, click Local Storage > Storage Groups in the QoreStor navigation pane.

NOTE: This section refers to using QoreStor with local storage. Please see Managing cloud storage for information on cloud and archive tiers as well as object storage.

Viewing storage group information

In the QoreStor GUI you can easily view all of your storage groups on the Storage Groups page.

To view storage groups, complete the following steps.

  1. In the navigation menu, click Local Storage to expand the menu, then click Storage Groups.
  2. On the Storage Groups page you can view the following columns of information about your storage groups.
    • Name—Displays the name of the Storage Group.
    • Encryption—Displays whether Encryption is turned On or Off.
    • Compression—Displays the compression type as either Fast or Best.
    • Containers—Displays the number of containers in this storage group. You can click this number, which links to the Containers page for the storage group.
  3. In the list of storage groups, find the storage group for which you want to view statistics, and then click the (ellipsis icon) in the upper-right corner of the information pane.
  4. Click Details. A page for the selected storage group is displayed, showing the following:

    • Summary— Provides summary data for the storage group, including:
      • Name
      • Compression Mode
      • Number of Containers
