Managing storage groups

To organize your data, you can easily create storage groups and create containers within those storage groups on your DR Series system. A storage group allows you to create separate storage policies for different data groups and the different capacities utilized on a single DR Series system. 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, the DR Series system contains a single default storage group, named DefaultGroup.

Refer to these important notes about storage groups.

To view the Storage Groups page, on the left navigation menu, click System Configuration > Storage Groups.
