Storage Growth

StorageGrowth.png

The storage growth section shows how the storage consumption for your account has changed over the last 90 days. When you hover over a particular place in the chart, you can see the storage consumed on a day. 

For a new account, the storage growth is zero percent. After the first backup job is complete, the chart shows the growth in comparison to zero bytes consumed on the day of the account creation. The chart is updated over a period of 90 days based on the data Druva backs up from different data sources according to different schedules.
The storage growth chart on the Druva Cloud Platform Console displays the total de-duped data backed up in inSync over the last 90 days and Source + Changed data backed up in Phoenix.

Cloud Status

CloudStatus.png

This section shows the region where your snapshots are stored and its health. In the above example, two locations in your account are operational. The possible states are:

State Denoted with Description
Operational green.png All Druva services are up and running
Planned Maintenance blue.png Few or all regions are undergoing scheduled maintenance. Druva services may not be available for some time. 
Partial Service Disruption orange.png Regions denoted with the orange dot are unavailable. Druva services linked to this region are not available for use until the regions are operational. 
Service Disruption red.png All regions are unavailable and none of the Druva services are available for use until the regions are operational. When you hover on the region you can see how much storage a service consumes in the region. 

The cloud status section shows service disruption for a region if it is unavailable for either inSync or Phoenix. It is possible that the region unavailable for one of the products while it is available for the other service. To see if a region is available for Phoenix or inSync, hover over the region and see more details about it.

For example, it is possible that a region is unavailable for Phoenix while it is available for inSync, and the cloud status section shows service disruption. However, if the Phoenix license is not attached to the account, the cloud status shows operational for that region since it is available for inSync.
