    Abstract

    The focus of this IBM® Blueprint is to showcase a method to store volumes that are created by using Safeguarded Copy off-premise to Amazon S3 object storage that uses the IBM FlashSystem Transparent cloud tiering (TCT) feature.

    TCT enables volume data to be copied and transferred to object storage. The TCT feature supports creating connections to cloud service providers to store copies of volume data in private or public clouds.

    This feature is useful for organizations of all sizes when planning for disaster recovery operations or storing a copy of data as extra backup. TCT provides seamless integration between the storage system and public or private clouds for Safeguarded Copy volumes and non-Safeguarded Copy volumes.
