This demo shows how to provision IBM Cloud Object Storage inside of Softlayer “IBM Cloud”. The provisioned storage “bucket” will be used as an off-premise cloud container for IBM Spectrum Protect.
This cloud container is an ideal backup or archive destination for long term data retention. One methods to do this would be the use of a directory-containers to tier backups after a specific amount of time out to the COS container. A second method, allows direct write backups or archives to COS for “archival” purposes when operational recovery is not needed.
