Configure CloudCache - Summary

Field Description

The following table lists the fields on the Summary tab.

Field Action
Name

The name for your Phoenix CloudCache.

Note: The network status for your Phoenix CloudCache should be "Connected". 

Network Status The current status of the network connection with Phoenix CloudCache.
FQDN The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the Phoenix CloudCache. 
Data Volume

The path to the Data folder.

Note: Your server data is saved to the Data folder, and the metadata is saved to cloud storage. 

Symbolic links and mounted folders do not appear in the folder structure.

Volume size The size that this volume can accommodate in GB.
Backup to Cloud if unable to backup to Cache

The option to enable Phoenix to back the data directly to Phoenix Cloud in case Phoenix Agent is unable to backup to CloudCache because either CloudCache server is not reachable or it has run out of disk space.

If you do not select this check box and CloudCache Server is not reachable or runs out of disk space, the backup operation fails.

Note: This functionality is available only for Phoenix agents with version 3.2 r2743 or later on GovCloud only. For older versions, backups by default fall back to Cloud if CloudCache server is not reachable or runs out of disk space.

Schedule

On the Schedule tab, you can define the schedule for your CloudCache to synchronize the backup data to Phoenix Cloud.

Screenshot

Configure CloudCache - Schedule

Field Description

The following table lists the fields on the Schedule tab.

Field Description
Start at The time when you want Phoenix CloudCache to start synchronization. 

Duration (Hrs)

The duration in hours within which you want synchronization to occur.

Note: If the synchronization completes within this duration, Phoenix CloudCache checks for data additions every 10 minutes. If new data is backed up during this period, Phoenix CloudCache synchronizes this new data to Phoenix Cloud. For example, if you set Start time to 9 AM and duration to 4 hours, and the synchronization completes before 1 PM, Phoenix CloudCache checks for new data every 10 minutes. Phoenix CloudCache synchronizes this data to cloud. Phoenix CloudCache considers this synchronization operation as complete at 1 PM. 
Max Bandwidth (Mbps)

The bandwidth (in Mbps) that you want Phoenix CloudCache to consume at the time of synchronizing backup data to cloud storage. 

Repeat on

The days on which you want Phoenix CloudCache to synchronize backup data to cloud storage. 

Note: We recommend that you create a separate schedule for weekdays and weekends. This is because you can benefit from the wider off-peak windows on weekends, and thus set a longer duration for synchronization operations. 

Actions

The following table lists the actions on the Schedule tab.

Action Description

Add More

Add the fields to configure an additional schedule for your CloudCache.

To delete a schedule, click the (Delete icon) icon corresponding to the schedule. The (Delete icon) icon appears only when there is more than one schedule added.

Finish Completes the configuration of CloudCache.
