Set up LIFE CYCLE policy on StorageGrid?

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?

 

Thanks!

Hi there!

 

Yes, you can configure StorageGrid to tier to cloud resources like AWS Glacier for long term archiving. This page covers is from a high level point of view, including demonstrations - https://blog.netapp.com/automatically-tier-your-data-to-amazon-s3-glacier-with-netapp-storagegrid/

 

Hope this helps!

One follow-up.

 

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.
