Adding Additional Backup Locations - Cloud Storage

On the cloud storage page, you can view the vendor type, the deduplication savings in percentage, total application size which is the total amount of data that is backed up to this particular storage and the size on disk which is the total size occupied on disk and with deduplication, this includes the data written and the size occupied by aged jobs that are still referenced by other valid job.

You can add more storage locations to the storage.
