A few prerequisites:

2. Storfirst360 installed, a filesystem created, a cache created in this filesystem and a volume for adding the Wasabi storage policy to. If you need assistance, please reach out to Congruity360 at https://www.congruity360.com/.

Step 1 - Platform discovery

Step 2 - Create a Policy to transfer files to Wasabi

Step 3 - Apply Policy

Step 4 - Test and validation

Below are the Steps in more detail:

Step 2 - Create a Policy to transfer files to Wasabi

At this stage, we have successfully made a connection to your Wasabi account from the Storfirst360. However, we need to create a policy to tell Storfirst360 to transfer your files from the mounted Volume to Wasabi.

There are two ways to create the storage policy:

First way is to create it by simply clicking on the Create Storage Policy button available on the Platform view screen. (Note: This button sets default values for some Storage Policy fields)

The other way to create a Storage Policy is the following:

  • Click on Filesystems from the left bar, and then create a new Storage Policy by clicking on the Storage Policy icon.

  • Enter a Name and Description (Optional). Select the Storage Platform we just created and the appropriate Platform Resource (bucket). Hit 'Create' once you are done.

Step 4 - Test and validation

At this stage, your Storfirst360 is configured to transfer files from the mounted Volume over to your Wasabi bucket. You can test the configuration by uploading a new file to the Storfirst360 drive and confirming if the file got transferred to your Wasabi bucket via the console or any S3 client that you typically use. You can also check the Storfirst360 Dashboard to view if the data is about to get flushed out. See the Caches widget below.
