Tiering policies

cloud_levels_1-1

Cold snapshots (snapshot-only)

Cold snapshots data is moved to cloud object storage.

Use case
  • Entry level tiering
  • Enables extended snapshots retention

cloud_levels_2-1

Cold user data & snapshots (auto)

Cold data (user and snapshot) is moved to cloud object storage.

Use case
  • Primary storage tiering
  • Optimize storage for mission critical & latency sensitive workloads

cloud_levels_3-1

All user data (all)

Complete volumes entirely moved to cloud object storage.

Use case
  • Secondary storage tiering
  • Expand the amount of replicated volumes for backup and DR
