The Data Protection Suite option is available only with the Syncplicity Enterprise Edition.
In a Syncplicity Data Protection Suite account, you have a total storage capacity based on your Data Protection Suite purchase. This capacity can be allocated across your Syncplicity StorageVaults, both on-premise and cloud based. With this account, seats are unlimited. The Syncplicity Data Protection Suite account changes how you allocate storage. Within Syncplicity, you allocate storage from the Manage StorageVaults page.
With your Syncplicity Data Protection Suite account you can configure the amount of storage to use in the cloud. However, all Syncplicity report output files are exported to the cloud. This means you should leave enough storage allocated to the Cloud StorageVault for your reporting needs.
USE CASE: If you purchased 10 TB of total storage capacity as part of the Data Protection Suite, and you have cloud storage and two on-premise StorageVaults, you can allocate the amount of storage from each StorageVault and the cloud; although, you cannot exceed your total purchased capacity. In this case, with 10 TB of total storage, you can determine how much storage each StorageVault allocates. You can also allocate less than the total amount to retain storage in reserve for new StorageVaults.
EXAMPLE: In the following example, the account has a total storage capacity of 20480 GB, and a total of 20464 GB was allocated, leaving 16 GB that could be allocated to the account. Each StorageVault, including the cloud, allocated its total capacity. In this case, a new StorageVault can be added or the size can be increased within an existing StorageVault, then an additional 16 GB could be allocated.
