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.
