AutomaticTapeCreationRule - Storage Gateway

AutomaticTapeCreationRule

An automatic tape creation policy consists of automatic tape creation rules where each rule defines when and how to create new tapes. For more information about automatic tape creation, see Creating Tapes Automatically.

Contents

MinimumNumTapes

The minimum number of available virtual tapes that the gateway maintains at all times. If the number of tapes on the gateway goes below this value, the gateway creates as many new tapes as are needed to have MinimumNumTapes on the gateway. For more information about automatic tape creation, see Creating Tapes Automatically.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1. Maximum value of 10.

Required: Yes

PoolId

The ID of the pool that you want to add your tape to for archiving. The tape in this pool is archived in the Amazon S3 storage class that is associated with the pool. When you use your backup application to eject the tape, the tape is archived directly into the storage class (S3 Glacier or S3 Glacier Deep Archive) that corresponds to the pool.
