Managing objects through information lifecycle management

You manage objects by configuring information lifecycle management (ILM) rules and policies, which determine how the StorageGRID system creates and distributes copies of object data and how it manages those copies over time.

Designing and implementing an ILM policy requires careful planning and an understanding of ILM. You must define the logic for how objects are to be filtered, copied, and distributed throughout the system, taking into account your operational requirements, the topology of your StorageGRID system, your object protection needs, and the available storage types.
