  • Cloud Tiering
  • A bring your own license (BYOL) of Cloud Tiering

Answer

  • Yes, all previously tiered data remains accessible, however, for the licensed BYOL capacity exceeding, the tiering of new cold data stops, and when cloud tier data is retrieved, this data is moved back to the performance tier from the cloud.
  • If you have a PAYGO marketplace subscription to the BlueXP - Deploy & Manage Cloud Data Services, new cold data will continue to be tiered to object storage and you’ll pay for those charges on a per-use basis.
