Cloud Sync

Endpoints that are required for Cloud Sync

Contributors netapp-bcammett

The NetApp data broker requires outbound internet access over port 443 to communicate with the Cloud Sync service and to contact a few other services and repositories. Your local web browser also requires access to endpoints for certain actions. If you need to limit outbound connectivity, refer to the following list of endpoints when configuring your firewall for outbound traffic.

Data broker endpoints

The data broker contacts the following endpoints:

Endpoints Purpose

To contact a repository for updating CentOS packages for the data broker host. This endpoint is contacted only if you manually install the data broker on a CentOS host.

To contact repositories for updating Node.js, npm, and other 3rd party packages used in development.

To access a repository for updating PM2, which is a 3rd party package used to monitor Cloud Sync.

To contact the AWS services that Cloud Sync uses for operations (queuing files, registering actions, and delivering updates to the data broker).

For example:
See AWS documentation for a list of S3 endpoints

To contact Amazon S3 when a sync relationship includes an S3 bucket.

To contact the Cloud Sync service.

To contact NetApp support when using a BYOL license for sync relationships.

To install 7z on the data broker virtual machine during installation and updates. 7z is needed to send AutoSupport messages to NetApp technical support.

To verify AWS credentials when the data broker is deployed in AWS or when it's deployed on your premises and AWS credentials are provided. The data broker contacts this endpoint during deployment, when it's updated, and when it's restarted.

Web browser endpoints

Your web browser needs access to the following endpoint to download logs for troubleshooting purposes:
