CloudCache Setup Workflow

Task Number Task Description

1

Log on to Phoenix Management Console and download CloudCache installer

To download and set up Phoenix CloudCache, you must log on to Phoenix Management Console.

The Phoenix CloudCache installer is available on the Phoenix Downloads page that you can access from Phoenix Management Console.

2

Add, install, and activate Phoenix CloudCache

To start, add an instance of Phoenix CloudCache from Phoenix Management Console.

At the time of adding, Phoenix Cloud generates an activation key. This key functions as a unique identifier and establishes a connection between Phoenix Cloud and Phoenix CloudCache. Use this key to activate Phoenix CloudCache.

Note: Perform this step for all instances of Phoenix CloudCache.

3

Configure Phoenix CloudCache

After you activate Phoenix CloudCache, you must configure the CloudCache so that you can successfully use it for your data backup and restore tasks.

In the configuration, perform the following tasks:

  1. Add volume: While adding a volume, specify the folder as a volume and folder size as the volume size to back up your server data in Phoenix CloudCache. For more information, see Add Data Volumes.
  2. Attach server group and define retention period: To start backup and restore tasks for your servers, you need to attach the server groups and configure the retention period for each attached server group. For more information, see Attach a new server group and Update the retention period of a server group
  3. Define synchronization schedule and maximum bandwidth: The schedule that you configure for Phoenix CloudCache to synchronize the data with Phoenix Cloud storage. To ensure optimum usage of bandwidth, we recommend that you set these schedules during off-peak hours. To benefit from the wider off-peak windows on weekends, you can set the weekly schedule for a longer duration. For more information, see Update synchronization schedule for a CloudCache.

Note: Perform this step for all instances of Phoenix CloudCache.
