To connect the storage system to a cloud service, you need to configure firewall settings and cloud connection settings, including the organization code from the cloud service and proxy server settings, by using the Set Up Cloud Connection Settings window.

Note:
  • Cloud connector technology

    Enabling cloud connector technology allows storage system configuration changes to be performed remotely.

  • Proxy server

    The storage system supports only HTTP proxy with basic authentication.

  • Firewall

    The direction of communication between the storage system and the cloud service goes from the storage system to the cloud service, not from the cloud service to the storage system. If you are using a firewall, you need to configure the firewall as shown below to communicate from the storage system to the cloud service.
