Managing cloud storage

QoreStor enables multiple options for extending your on-prem environment to the cloud. Please refer to the sections below for additional information.


Adding a Cloud storage group

You can add a cloud tier to QoreStor through either the QoreStor GUI or the command line interface. For more information on Cloud Storage Groups and cloud replication, refer to the topics below:

Adding a cloud tier through the GUI

IMPORTANT: Your cloud storage must be configured prior to completing this procedure.

The procedures for adding a cloud tier differ slightly based on the cloud storage provider. Review the procedure for your cloud storage provider:

Adding a Microsoft Azure cloud tier

To add a Microsoft Azure cloud storage group, complete the following steps:

  1. In the navigation menu, click Cloud Storage to expand the menu, then click Cloud Tier.
  2. Click Configure.
  3. In the Cloud Provider drop-down, select Azure Blob.
  4. Provide a container name. This is the name of your existing Azure container.
  5. Enter your Cloud Connection String.

    NOTE: The Connection String can be found in your Azure portal under Storage Accounts >Access keys > Connection string.

  6. To apply encryption, in the Cloud Tier Encryption section enter the following:
    • Passphrase — the passphrase is user-defined and is used to generate a passphrase key that encrypts the file in which the content encryption keys are kept. The passphrase is a human readable key, which can be up to 255 bytes in length. It is mandatory to define a passphrase to enable encryption.

      IMPORTANT: It is mandatory to define a passphrase to enable encryption. If the passphrase is compromised or lost, the administrator should change it immediately so that the content encryption keys do not become vulnerable. If this passphrase is lost or forgotten, data in the cloud will be unrecoverable.

    • Confirm Passphrase — re-enter the passphrase used above.
  7. Click Configure. A Cloud Storage Group will be created.
  8. To enable replication to the cloud, you must link a local container to the cloud using the procedures in Adding a cloud tiering policy.
