How to enable StorageGRID in your environment

Use a Cloud Storage Pool for backup

Contributors netapp-aronk netapp-jonathanwong

You can create an ILM rule to move objects into a Cloud Storage Pool for backup..

What you'll need
  • StorageGRID 11.6 has been configured.

  • You have already set up an external Azure container.

  1. In the Grid Manager, navigate to ILM > Rules > Create.

  2. Enter a description.

  3. Enter a criterion to trigger the rule.

  4. Click Next.

  5. Replicate the object to Storage Nodes.

  6. Add a placement rule.

  7. Replicate the object to the Cloud Storage Pool

  8. Click Next.

  9. Click Save.

Expected result

Confirm that the retention diagram shows the objects stored locally in StorageGRID and in a Cloud Storage Pool for backup.

Confirm that, when the ILM rule is triggered, a copy exists in the Cloud Storage Pool and you can retrieve the object locally without doing an object restore.
