How do I create a cloud storage account for my Recovery-Series or UEB appliance?

SUMMARY

Before you can copy backups to the cloud, you must create an account with one of the supported cloud service providers.

ISSUE

Before you can begin storing backup copies in the cloud, you must create an account with one of the following supported cloud storage providers:
  • Google Cloud Storage Standard
  • Google Cloud Storage Nearline
  • Amazon S3
  • Rackspace
Creating a Google Cloud Storage Standard or Google Cloud Storage Nearline account
Google Cloud Storage and Google Cloud Storage Nearline storage are online storage services offered by Google. For details about Google Cloud Storage Standard and instructions for creating an account, see Google's documentation at https://developers.google.com/storage/docs/overview. For details about Google Cloud Storage Nearline and instructions for creating an account, see Google's documentation at https://cloud.google.com/storage-nearline.

After creating an account and storage buckets, you must enter the following storage bucket credentials when adding the cloud storage to your Recovery-Series or UEB appliance.
  • Access Key
  • Secret
These credentials are different from the username and password used to access your Google storage account. If you cannot locate your credentials, contact your storage provider. Unitrends does not have access to this information.

Creating an Amazon storage account
Amazon S3 is the online storage service offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS). To use Amazon S3, you must sign up for an AWS account. For details about Amazon S3 and instructions for creating an AWS account, see Amazon’s documentation at http://aws.amazon.com/s3/
Note: Amazon’s Reduced Redundancy Storage (RRS) option is not supported.

After creating an account and storage buckets, you must enter the following storage bucket credentials when adding the cloud storage to your Recovery-Series or UEB appliance:

These credentials are different from the username and password used to access your Amazon storage account. If you cannot locate your credentials, contact your storage provider. Unitrends does not have access to this information.
