GFS full backups to capacity tier

Post by andyb »

I was told that it is possible to have the GFS full backups for a backup copy job to be sent to capacity tier. I'm really struggling on how to set this up, does anyone have any experience with this?

I've added a SOBR as well as an S3 bucket, I'm just not grasping how this is possible within the backup copy job.

Hi,

Offloading to object storage is done automatically based on the settings configured for your scale-out backup repository's Capacity Tier. Your backup copy job does not require any settings changes.

Thanks!

Just set the operational restore window for a bit longer than backup copy job recent backups retention. This way, only older GFS backups will be offloaded to Capacity Tier. Thanks!
