I am evaluationg StorageGrid.
I am thininking to use Storagegrid as a short term backup media, and then keep long term backups to Cloud. for instance, weekly backup in StorageGrid, data older than a week will be transferred to Cloud.
Can I achieve that on StorageGrid?

Can StorageGrid allow me to tier data to Azure blob object? or S3 ONLY?
The answer may be a bit late for you but since release 11.3 (released Oct 2019) Cloud Storage Pool (for tiering to cloud) supports both AWS S3 and Azure Blob Archive tier.
