More Information

This storage system has a feature which allows older data to be offloaded to object storage. Object storage gateway appliances that are used to store backup data in filer (CIFS/NFS) or block device mode (iSCSI/FC/SAS) are not supported if the backup data is offloaded to object storage and is no longer stored directly on the appliance. If there is a need to offload restore points to a remote site, the only supported way is to use Capacity Tier or Backup to Tape jobs. Please find additional details here.

Please be aware that we’re making changes which will restrict access to product updates for users without an active contract.
