Adding an Amazon S3 cloud tier

NOTE: For cloud tier to work correctly, first create a default project in the Google cloud platform for interoperable access. For more information, see Migrating from Amazon S3 to Cloud Storage | Google Cloud.

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

  1. In the navigation menu, click Cloud Storage to expand the menu, then click Cloud Tier.
  2. In the Cloud pane, click Configure to add a cloud tier.
  3. In the Cloud Provider drop-down, select AWS S3.
  4. Provide the name for your S3 bucket.
  5. Enter your Connection String using one of the two methods below:
    • Default - this option will compile your connection string into the correct format using the inputs below.
      • Access key - The access key is typically 20 upper-case English characters
      • Secret key - The secret key is generated automatically by AWS. It is typically 40 characters, including mixed upper and lower-case and special symbols.
      • Region - The region specifies the Amazon-specific region in which you want to deploy your backup solution. You can obtain your region code from https://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/rande.html#s3_region.
    • Custom - this option allows you to enter your connection string with additional parameters.
      • Your connection string uses the following syntax:
        "accesskey=<ABDCEWERS>;secretkey=< >; loglevel=warn; region=<aws-region>;"

        Please note the following:

        1. The access key is typically 20 upper-case English characters
        2. The secret key is generated automatically by AWS. It is typically 40 characters, including mixed upper and lower-case and special symbols.
        3. The region specifies the Amazon-specific region in which you want to deploy your backup solution. You can obtain your region code from https://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/rande.html#s3_region.

        An example of a connection string with this syntax follows. Logically, each connection string is unique.

        accesskey=AKIARERFUCFODHFJUCWK;secretkey=p+8/T+o5WeZkX11QbuPazHX1IdWbwgFplxuVlO8J;loglevel=warn;region=eu-central-1;
  6. To apply encryption, in the Cloud TierEncryption 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.

Adding a Wasabi S3 cloud tier

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

  1. In the navigation menu, click Cloud Storage to expand the menu, then click Cloud Tier.
  2. In the Cloud pane, click Configure to add a cloud tier.
  3. In the Cloud Provider drop-down, select Wasabi S3.
  4. Provide a container name. This is the existing name of your container in your cloud platform.
  5. Enter your Connection String using one of the two methods below:
    • Default - this option will compile your connection string into the correct format using the inputs below.
      • Access key - The access key is typically 20 upper-case English characters
      • Secret key - The secret key is generated automatically by Wasabi. It is typically 40 characters, including mixed upper and lower-case and special symbols.
      • Region - The region specifies the Wasabi-specific region in which you want to deploy your backup solution. You can obtain your region code from https://wasabi.com/help/docs/.
      • Endpoint - If you are using VPC endpoints, enter the correct endpoint information.
    • Custom - this option allows you to enter your connection string with additional parameters.
      • Your connection string uses the following syntax:
        "accesskey=<ABDCEWERS>;secretkey=< >; loglevel=warn; region=<wasabi-region>;"

        Please note the following:

        1. The access key is typically 20 upper-case English characters
        2. The secret key is generated automatically by Wasabi. It is typically 40 characters, including mixed upper and lower-case and special symbols.
        3. The region specifies the Wasabi-specific region in which you want to deploy your backup solution. You can obtain your region code from https://wasabi.com/help/docs/.
