use Google Translate

Applies to: 

Scenario

You can use Acronis Files Cloud with Acronis Storage (S3-compatible). This is the recommended configuration.

Alternatively, you can register Microsoft Azure Storage, Amazon S3, or other S3-compatible storages.

Prerequisites

When registering storage, have this information on hand:

Acronis Storage (S3-compatible)

  • s3 access key id
  • s3 secret access key
  • storage address
  • bucket name
  • encryption type (aes128, aes 256) you want to use (optional)

Amazon S3

S3-compatible storages

  • s3 access key id
  • s3 secret access key
  • storage address
  • bucket name
  • encryption type (aes128, aes 256) you want to use (optional)

Microsoft Azure

Registration

Using a special registration tool, register your storage:

1. Download and unpack the tool.

2. Run the tool, using this syntax (the command should be all lower-case):
infra-tool.py --action=register --host=<account server host URL> --login=<account login> --password=<account password> --infra-capability=files_cloud --infra-name=<name of storage to be registered> --infra-url=<url of the component to be registered>

where:
<account server host URL> is the host name of the account server in the data center where this account is registered, for example https://eu-cloud.acronis.com

<account login> is the Acronis Cyber Cloud administrator account login and <account password> is the password for this account

<name of storage to be registered> is a human-readable name which will be used for this storage in the UI

<url of the component to be registered> is the URL of the storage.
Provide domain name in lower case. Access keys and secrets containing special characters should be individually URL encoded: '+' to '%2B', '/' to '%2F', '=' to '%3D', etc.

As the url of the component to be registered includes the '&' character, use quotation marks.

The URL can have one of these formats:

Acronis Storage (S3-compatible)
s3://<s3-access-key-id>:<s3-secret-access-key>@<storage-address>/<bucket-name>?encryption=<aes128|aes256>&use_ssl=<true|false>

Amazon S3

The Sync & Share service is currently only compatible with servers with Version 2 Signatures support: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/rande.html#s3_region
If the provided region is on that list with "Version 4 only", use the default endpoint address (s3.amazonaws.com).

amazon+s3://<s3-access-key-id>:<s3-secret-access-key>@s3-<region>.amazonaws.com/<bucket-name>?encryption=<aes128|aes256>&use_ssl=<true|false>
<region> is optional, for default region use s3.amazonaws.com address.

S3-compatible storages
s3://<s3-access-key-id>:<s3-secret-access-key>@<storage-address>/<bucket-name>?encryption=<aes128|aes256>&use_ssl=<true|false>

Microsoft Azure Storage
microsoft+azure://<azure-account-name>:<azure-access-key>@blob.core.windows.net/<azure-blob-container-name>?encryption=<aes128|aes256>
