How To Backup and Recover Data Stored On The Microsoft Azure Cloud

Microsoft Azure Cloud

Start EonOne and open the Settings menu. Enter Backup & Restore settings Switch to the Cloud page After switching to the Cloud Provider tab click Add a cloud service provider. Select the pool we just created from the pull-down menu and choose Microsoft Azure storage from Cloud vendor For endpoint and share key copy and paste the account name we just configured and one access key Press OK when you’re done. EonStor GS has completed connection with Microsoft Azure only after “connected” is shown on the EonOne. After connection we need to create a volume map it to the server so that data can be stored to the local storage and uploaded to cloud Switch to the volume tab and click add to add a volume Newly created volumes will have “enable cloud” ticked by default.

Backup And Restore

In order to demonstrate backup and restore for the next part we will select Cache mode fully cache here. Select Continue for Cache period. We will directly map out the volume in this step. Tick Host LUN mapping after mapping out the volume we can now see the hard drive space in Server’s Computer Management. The second part will demonstrate how to restore EonStor GS with data backed up on the cloud. We will transfer some data to the cloud- integrated volume we just created and shut down the power of EonStor GS to simulate a disaster and finally use another EonStor GS to recover data backed up on the cloud First we will store some data in the disk we just mapped. As we set it to fully cache and cache period to continue data in the volume will automatically be backed up to the Microsoft Azure Turn off the power after completion to simulate in disaster. Start up EonOne interface of another EonStor GS Open the Settings page. Enter Backup & Restore settings Change to the Cloud page Switch to the Disaster Recovery tab and click on Recover now to start the data recovery process. Enter connection information of Microsoft Azure.

Enter storage account name for endpoint and fill in the matching access key for this account Press Get Bucket Information button after completion. Here we can see the bucket which previously uploaded data Click Preview to see the backed up Volume in this bucket. Press the arrow sign to see if this volume has a uploaded snapshot. Choose the bucket to restore and press Next. Next we will set up a pool to store the restored data Here we will demonstrate creating a new Pool For Create Pool, we will demonstrate using a RAID6 Pool with four hard drives and assign it to Controller A Then select the volume to be restored Press OK after confirming the information is correct and the data restoration process will begin The restored Pool and Volume can be seen after completion. The Volume at this time will be shown as Unmapped. Return to the Settings page. Enter Storage settings Select Volume in the Volume page then click Map to host. Click Create to create LUN mapping. We will directly map out the volume in this step Go to Computer Management in Server to turn the hard drive online and we can see the data has been successfully restored.
