Storing data in tiers can enhance the efficiency of your storage system. You can manage storage tiers by using FabricPool to store data in a tier, based on how frequently the data is accessed.

This procedure sets up an object store as the cloud tier for FabricPool. Keep in mind that once you attach to a local tier (aggr) the cloud tier cannot be unattached.

You will need to use the CLI to set a volume tiering policy and to start tiering.

  1. Click Storage > Tiers > Add Cloud Tier and select the object store provider you want to use.

  2. If you want to create a cloud mirror, click Add as Primary.
