Cloud Stores

Specific type of stores that can be created in Configuration tool are cloud stores. This chapter describes available cloud stores one by one.

Directory Creation Rules

Most of the cloud stores are using flat file system, i.e. no directory structure creation is supported. However, some of them allow hierarchical file names imitating folder structure, e.g. 2011/11/23/file.txt.

The rules of the creation of the subdirectories resp. hierarchical file names are configurable. The naming is based on the current date and time and enables granularity of milliseconds. The naming scheme is specified in format:

yyyy\MM\dd\HH\mm\ss\fff

Of course, an arbitrary substring can be added to the format string. By specifying the certain fractions of the time in the format string, the frequency of subdirectory creation, thus indirectly the number of files stored in a directory can be affected.

 

How to install

Install and configure HSM (see the step by step description in the HSM Install and Configuration manual). When it comes to Stores configuration, access to your cloud store will be defined:

1.Click the New store button.

2.On the first dialog of the MediaStore Administration Wizard choose the MediaStore type, i.e. the store to be used, in the dropdown box and enter any Name in the text box below. Click Next.

3.The next dialog of the wizard is specific for each cloud store type – for particular store configuration options description see the next section. When the cloud store configuration is finished, click Next.

4.The final dialog is again common for every store type.

The Relative Speed of the store text box represents the relative speed of this store compared to other stores.

If HSM should copy files into the cache when reading from this store, check Use HSM Cache for read operations.

Click Finish.
