Cloud Sync for CIFS shares


Based on my reading, Sync Cloud can also support CIFS shares in addtion to NFS. 


However, I don't see examples on this regareds, I can see a lot of exaplations on the arctecture of Sycn Coud for NFS. 

Does CIFS for Sycn Cloud also need Data Broker, and same architecture? Any documents?




It is not a backup tool per se. It can easily create a secondary/tertiary data copy, but was never planned as a backup tool. We are adding some features that would make it good for archival use cases.

Yes it is fully supported.
Yes, you need a data broker. Can be the same one and use it both for NFS and CIFS.

Based on readings, it cann't support retention and automatically expiration, I think. Then it should not be used as a backup tool Correct?
