In this post. I’ll configure Zerto 7.5 to use the AWS Storage Gateway to store my Zerto Long Term Retention (LTR) backups.
The AWS Storage Gateway comes in three flavors: file gateway, volume gateway and tape gateway. I’m using the file gateway.
Deploy the AWS Storage Gateway
To install, go to the AWS console and search for “AWS Storage Gateway”. Click on the Create Gateway and follow the wizard.
Select File Gateway.
I’m running vSphere, so I downloaded the ESXi .ovf and followed the simple deployment instructions.
I used the public endpoint.
Added in the AWS Storage Gateway VM IP address.
After it connected I activated the Gateway, configured the local disks and logging and completed the installation. It’s that straightforward.
In the next post. I’ll configure Zerto to use the AWS Storage Gateway for LTR backup retention.
