Adding Region Based Storage Rules to a Plan

Region based storage is a type of plan configuration that defines storage rules based on the region associated to a server or laptop. Servers that are located within the boundaries of a particular region will use the storage configurations of the associated region based storage rule for the plan when backing up their data.

Note: The region in the rule must exactly match the region associated to the client in order for the client to use the region based storage rules. If there is no exact match, then the client will use the primary storage configured for the plan.

Before You Begin

  1. From the navigation pane, go to Manage > Plans.

    The Plans page appears.

  2. On the Plans page, click the name of the laptop or server plan that you want to use.

    1. In the Name box, enter or change the name for the copy.
