In this post, I will use the Zerto Long Term Retention repository (LTR) I created in this post using the AWS Storage Gateway and S3 storage.
The first step is to create a VPG and target the AWS Storage Gateway as the LTR repository.
I create a new VPG from the Zerto dashboard.
Give the VPG a name:
Add some VMs to the VPG.
Follow the steps in the wizard until you get to step 7: Retention Policy.
Slide the Long Term Retention toggle to turn it on.
Since I configured the AWS Storage Gateway already and set it as the default repository, it automatically populates the target repository and connection information. Edit the retention information to meet your needs and finish the wizard.
Once the replication via the AWS Storage Gateway to S3 completes, you’re ready to do a test restore. In the next post , I do a restoration from S3 via the AWS Storage Gateway.
