AltaVault Backup Mode size

Hi everybody,


is not clear to me how many TB I can have to store locally backed up data prior to tier them to i.e. a StorageGRID system (cloud).


In the AV FAQ I can read that Backup Mode is optimized for repeating datasets and rapid backups and recoveries. In Backup mode, the AltaVault appliance keeps recent copies of regularly recurring backups in cache for quick recoveries, while also vaulting data out to the cloud. Dedupe rates typically are higher in backup mode. Cloud capacity is limited to 5 times that of the cache.


Assuming that I have an AVA-v32 its 32 TB of usable cache 32*5=160 TB of "Cloud capacity supported". Does this mean that I can store up to 160 TB of backed up data locally to the AVA prior to tier them externally?
And what's about the "Logical Cloud Capacity" assumed at its maximum as a 30*160 (always with AVA-v32 model), so that 4,8 PB? I can store on a StorageGRID up to 4.8 PB?


In other words it's not clear to me this "cache" role? Think to backup in its most general form.

Thank you
