Hi Guys,

I have some questions about Cloudian S3 storage.

  1. Does Commvault fully support Cloudian S3 storage?
  2. If so, is ‘object lock’ functionality also supported?

I cannot find any information about it in the BOL.

Hi @Onno van den Berg ,

Thank you for your reply. I’ve got one more question. What about deduplication? Can we use Commvault Dedup and Cloudian Hyperstore with object lock enabled?

I have found this: 


IMPORTANT NOTE: At the time this document was created, Commvault does not support storing deduplicated data on a Cloud Library for which WORM with object.

The document was created in 2019. Do you know if there is any update of this whitepaper?

Hi Kamil,

It depends on the situation. For long term retention I would say no, but for short term retention like for example 30 days it is definitely possible. See: https://documentation.commvault.com/11.24/expert/9251_configuring_worm_storage_mode_on_cloud_storage.html

But do mind it will be less efficient because it will seal the DDB following the configured retention.
