ILM rule 1 for compliance example: Erasure Coding profile with bucket matching

This example ILM rule applies only to the S3 tenant account named Bank of ABC. It matches any object in the bank-records bucket and then places an erasure-coded copy of the object on Storage Nodes at three data center sites using a 6+3 Erasure Coding profile. This rule satisfies the requirements of compliant S3 buckets: erasure-coded copies are kept on Storage Nodes from day 0 to forever, using Ingest Time as the reference time.
