Prerequisites for Storage Connector Installation

Before you read this article, verify that you read and understand the information in topic About Syncplicity StorageVaults.

If you plant to install the Storage Connector in an AWS environment, see Prerequisites for AWS deployment.

To configure on-premise StorageVaults, you need to install at least two Syncplicity On-Premise Storage Connectors. The On-premise Storage Connector is a server software that runs as a virtual machine and connects the Syncplicity orchestration layer in the cloud to your storage endpoint using NFSv3. For example, you can configure an on-premise Storage Connector to store data on EMC Isilon scale-out NAS, EMC VNX/VNXe file based or unified storage arrays, or any other NAS system that supports NFSv3. Additionally, Object Storage interfaces can be used for storage endpoints such as EMC Enterprise Cloud Storage (ECS), EMC Atmos or Amazon S3.

You need at least two on-premise Storage Connectors but you can deploy more for scalability and high availability purposes. An SSL offloading load-balancer must also be deployed in front of these Storage Connector virtual servers.

Before installing on-premise Storage Connector, verify that your environment meets the following prerequisites.
