Configuring VTL Partitions for the Cloud Appliance


Q-Cloud Protect is designed to be used as a replication target for on-site DXi appliances, on-site DXi appliances using OpenStorage (OST) optimized duplication, or Veritas NetBackup or BackupExec OST servers with DXi Accent enabled.

Q-Cloud Protect does not support use-cases for directly accessing data stored in NAS shares or VTL partitions from the cloud appliance. To access data stored in a share or partition from the cloud appliance, you must failback and recover the data at the source.

The VTL wizard provides guided assistance for configuring the Q-Cloud Protect appliance to present its storage as one or more Virtual Tape Library (VTL) partitions for use with a backup application. Although you cannot access data directly on a VTL partition from the cloud appliance, it is important to configure the cloud appliance to present its storage as a VTL partition to then replicate data to it from source VTL partitions.

Note: You cannot use the VTL wizard to edit or add media to existing partitions, or to edit existing host access groups. For more information about working with VTL partitions, see Configure VTL.
