Good afternoon all --
I'm trying to find some good info about when to configure and use a Cloud Storage Pool and when to just stick with using individual (but redundant?) media agents. The online documentation tells me *how* to create a Storage Pool, but not *when* I should do that (in what cases would I pick #2 over #1?) or what its benefits are. Here's my scenario:
I have two Media Agents built in my Cloud Provider that both have access to the same cloud storage libraries. Each MA has a DDB partition. I see that Commvault has already created a "Cloud Storage Pool" for each of them that each contain only themselves and their primary storage library.
Should I create a Cloud Storage Pool that contains both Media Agents in order to provide redundancy for the clients they're backing up? The alternative is to just have one MA be the "primary data path" and I can add the other MA to the Storage Policy as an "alternate data path"
Or is this just two different ways to accomplish the same thing? What's the benefit of using the Storage Pools? Feel free to point me to any documentation that would explain all of this.
Thanks for any clarity you can provide.
