CommVault Simpana adding a Cloud Library

Doug Soltesz -

Adding a Cloud Library to CommVault Simpana enables backups to SwiftStack object Storage.

In your CommCell, expand Storage Resources. Right click Libraries.



Choose Add -> Cloud Storage Library



A Box will open up with required fields to add cloud storage.  Use the table & examples below to select the proper information. 

 Field Name  Description  Value
 Name  This will be the Name given to the cloud library   Any Text Value, can include spaces
 Type  Select the Cloud API compatible with your storage   Select OpenStack Object Storage
 MediaAgent  Select a MediaAgent to pass data to this library.  Additional Media Agents can be
 added later to a cloud library 
  Select a Media Agent local to the
  SwiftStack cluster 
 Service Host  This is the address of the SwiftStack Storage authentication service.  Both v1 &
 v2 authentication can be used.  Both v1 & v2 authentication are compatible with
 CommVault Simpana v10 and SwiftStack
  For v1 Authentication enter:
  For v2 Authentication enter:
 Username  This is the SwiftStack username of the Account in which backups will be stored

  For v1 Authentication enter:
  For v2 Authentication enter:

 API Key  This is the User's password   Enter password
 Container  Commvault will auto create a container to store backups in if one is not already
 created.  If a particular SwiftStack Storage Policy is desired and is not the
 default, then the Container must be created using the SwiftStack Console and
 assigned the proper SwiftStack Storage Policy before attaching a cloud library.
 It is recommended not to store more
 than 2TB of Dedupe backups or 8TB of
 Full / Incremental backups per each
 container.  When naming the first
 container it is best to append 01 to the
 name so that many containers can be
 created to accommodate the full amount
 of backups.
