Adding an S3 Compatible 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 S3 Compatible.
  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 the cloud provider. It is typically 40 characters, including mixed upper and lower-case and special symbols.
      • Region - The region specifies the provider-specific region in which you want to deploy your backup solution. To obtain your region code, see the documentation for your vendor.
      • 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=<cloud-provider-region>;"

        Please note the following:

        1. The access key is typically 20 upper-case English characters
        2. The secret key is generated automatically by the cloud provider. It is typically 40 characters, including mixed upper and lower-case and special symbols.
        3. The region specifies the provider-specific region in which you want to deploy your backup solution. To obtain your region code, see the documentation for your vendor.

        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, select Encryption and 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 cloud tier through the command line

To add a cloud tier, complete the following steps.

  1. Access the QoreStor CLI. Refer to Using the QoreStor command line for more information.
  2. Add a new cloud tier using the command

    NOTE: You will be prompted to enter your Azure connection string or cloud provider access string after executing the command.

    Refer to the QoreStor Command LIne Reference Guide for more information on the cloud_tier command and available options.
