Add a data volume

To ensure that inSync ​CloudCache Server can handle multiple backup and restore requests, you must set an optimum size for this server. You must also plan for the number of inSync CloudCache Servers that you require in your organization. This usually depends on the policy that your organization adopts. For example, your organization's policy might require a separate instance of inSync ​CloudCache Server for each business unit.

The size of inSync CloudCache Server and the number of servers that you need depends on the following:

  • Number of CloudCache users
  • Type of backup data
  • Size of backup data (including incremental backups)
  • Size of restore data

Procedure

To increase the size of inSync ​CloudCache Server, you can add data volumes. You can add up to 10 data volumes for each inSync ​CloudCache Server. 

To add a data volume

  1. On the inSync Master Management Console menu bar, click Manage > CloudCache Servers
  2. Click the link of the inSync CloudCache Server name for which you want to add data volumes.  
  3. In the CloudCache Server Information area, click Add Data Volume. The Edit Storage window appears.
  4. Provide the appropriate information for each field:
  • In the Data folder box, type the path where you want to save the data on the inSync CloudCache Server or click the folder icon to select the location. 
  • In the Size box, type the data size that this volume can accommodate, and then click the unit in the adjacent list (GB or TB). 
  1. Click Add Data Volume

See Map users to inSync CloudCache Server.

Update inSync ​CloudCache Server schedule and resources

Note:  inSync CloudCache Server schedule defines the start time of sync operations. Sync operation starts just once daily, as per the  defined schedule.

If you add a new device and the inSync CloudCache Server sync operation has already begun as per the schedule, you must wait until the sync operation start time the next day. If you need to start a inSync CloudCache Server sync operation immediately, you must change the inSync CloudCache Server schedule to the next hour.

Procedure

To update the inSync CloudCache Server schedule and resources

  1. On the inSync Master Management Console menu bar, click Manage > CloudCache Servers
  2. Click the link of the inSync Cloud​Cache Server name for which you want to update the schedule or resources.
  3. In the Cloud Sync Schedule & Resources area, click Edit. The Edit CloudCache Server window appears.
  4. Provide the appropriate information for the schedule or resource.
    Field Action
    Country Click the country where this inSync CloudCache Server​ is located.
    Server timezone By default, the time zone for the country that you selected appears. If you want to change the time zone for this inSync CloudCache Server, click the appropriate time zone.
    Weekdays [Mon - Fri] Click the start time and end time during which you want inSync ​CloudCache Server to sync data to the cloud storage from Monday to Friday.
    Weekends [Sat - Sun] Click the start time and end time during which you want inSync ​CloudCache Server to sync data to the cloud storage on Saturday and Sunday.
    Max. bandwidth for upload Type the maximum network bandwidth for the sync operations from inSync ​CloudCache Server to the cloud storage, and then click the speed unit in the adjacent list. If you do not want to set any restriction on the bandwidth consumption, click Unlimited in the speed unit list.
    Note: The bandwidth that you allocate is divided among all storages that are mapped to inSync CloudCache Server. For example, if you set the maximum bandwidth for upload to 100 MB and you have two storages configured in your inSync CloudCache Server, inSync sets the maximum upload bandwidth for each storage to 50 MB.
    Max. bandwidth for download

    Type the maximum network bandwidth for the sync operations from the cloud storage to inSync ​CloudCache Server, and then click the speed unit in the adjacent list. If you do not want to set any restriction on the bandwidth consumption, click Unlimited in the speed unit list.

    Note: The bandwidth that you allocate is divided among all storages that are mapped to inSync CloudCache Server. For example, if you set the maximum bandwidth for download to 100 MB and you have two storages configured in your inSync CloudCache Server, inSync sets the maximum download bandwidth for each storage to 50 MB.
  5. Click Save

Decommission inSync CloudCache Server

You can permanently decommission your inSync CloudCache Server while keeping all your existing backup in tact. After you decommission your inSync CloudCache Server, users who were mapped to that server can no longer back up to or restore from the inSync CloudCache Server.

You do not need to explicitly unmap users before your decommission the CloudCache server. Once you start the decommissioning process, inSync Cloud ensures that all data backed up to the inSync CloudCache server is transferred to inSync Cloud. While the decommission process is in progress, you must ensure that your inSync CloudCache Server is connected to inSync Cloud so that it can transfer data to inSync Cloud. When the decommission process is in progress, in the CloudCache Server list page, the status for that server appears as Decommission in Progress. Once the decommission process is complete, you can no longer view or access that server from the CloudCache Server list.

Note: You cannot decommission a CloudCache Server if there are any CloudCache mappings associated with it.

Procedure

To decommission your inSync CloudCache Server 

  1. On the inSync Master Management Console menu bar, click Manage > CloudCache Servers
  2. Click the link of the inSync Cloud​Cache Server name that you want to decommission.
  3. Under the Summary tab, click Decommission

View reports

You can view and monitor inSync CloudCache Server statistics, such as the server name, the number of users mapped to the server, the number of users ready for restore, the total disk space available for cache data, and the total disk space that the cache data consumed until date. For more information, see Reports.
