Creating a Google Cloud Platform account

Google Cloud Storage is an online storage service offered by Google Cloud Platform. For details about Google Cloud Storage and instructions for creating an account, see Google's documentation at:
Google Cloud Storage offers three storage classes, each with different availability, latency, and throughput characteristics:
  • Standard
  • Durable Reduced Availability (DRA) Storage
  • Cloud Storage Nearline
All storage classes offer the same high level of durability. Use the link below to match your data storage needs with a storage class:
After creating an account and storage buckets, you must enter the following storage bucket credentials when adding the cloud storage to your Unitrends Free for Google Cloud Platform appliance:
  • Access Key
  • Secret
These credentials are different from the username and password used to access your Google Cloud Platform account. If you cannot locate your credentials, use the Google Developers Console: https://console.developers.google.com. Unitrends does not have access to this information.
