Amazon Web Services Replication

Replication configuration includes Amazon setup and Commvault configuration. You can configure the required Commvault entities individually, or all together using the replication group wizard.

Commvault Configuration

Commvault configuration includes the following entities:

  • Hypervisor configurations for the source and destination sites

  • Recovery target for each destination site

  • Replication group for virtual machines or instances that are replicated from the primary site to the secondary site

In addition, you can deploy access nodes in your environment to manage operations and MediaAgents to manage data movement. These entities are needed on the primary and destination sites.

Amazon Hypervisor Configuration

Depending on the authentication method you plan to use, you can configure Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles in Amazon (preferred), or obtain the access key and secret key for your Amazon account.

For IAM role definition, Commvault provides JSON policy templates that you can use to specify permissions for a role.
