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.
|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
|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:
|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

Cloud Library will now appear in menu and is ready to use.
