Using AWS Storage with CloudBerry

The following guide is to show how to connect an AWS S3 bucket to the Managed Backup Console (MBS); which will then filter down into CloudBerry Online Backup and allow the AWS storage to be used as a valid backup destination. Make sure you’ve already created your AWS S3 bucket before beginning on this walk-through.

Once the AWS S3 bucket has been created; it needs to be configured and connected into your MBS console. The steps to do this are as follows:

1. Login to your MBS Console.
Note: If you don’t have an MBS console login; sign up to have an account created.

2. On the main menu, click Storage then Storage Accounts from the drop down.

3. On the Storage Accounts page; click on Add Account
