Create Cloud Storage Container

Jump to: navigation, search

Each cloud container is represented by a bucket in your public or private object storage cloud.

Note that a given cloud container can only be used by one QuantaStor appliance at a time. If you need to add it to another appliance, please disable it from the first appliance before activating the container on another. Because the data is compressed, encrypted, and deduplicated, there is not a one to one match of files to objects in the cloud. So the data placed into the cloud container cannot be accessed directly via REST APIs. Cloud containers provide a mapping of object storage to NAS protocols so that you can archive storage into the cloud. It is ideal for unstructured data like documents.
