Cloud storage accounts

This section describes how to define links to existing cloud storage provider accounts, and how to manage those cloud accounts for use with Rapid Recovery. For example, you can archive Rapid Recovery data to the cloud, import archived data from the cloud, or export a virtual machine to the Azure cloud.

About cloud accounts

Rapid Recovery lets you archive data to a variety of cloud providers, or import archived data stored in a cloud account. Compatible clouds include Microsoft Azure, Amazon™, Rackspace, and any OpenStack-based provider. You can also perform virtual export to an Azure cloud account.

You can add an existing cloud account to the Rapid Recovery Core console. Once added, you can edit the information, configure the account connection options, or remove the account from Rapid Recovery.

Adding a cloud account

Before you can move data in either direction between a cloud account and your Core, you must add cloud provider account information to the Rapid Recovery Core Console. This information identifies the cloud account in the Core Console while caching the connection information securely. This process then lets Rapid Recovery Core connect to the cloud account to perform the operations you specify.

To add a cloud account, complete the steps in the following procedure.

1.
On the Rapid Recovery Core Console icon bar, click the [More] More icon and then select Cloud Accounts.
The Cloud Accounts page appears.
2.
On the Cloud Accounts page, click Add New Account.

The Add New Account dialog box opens.
