We have a challenge with one of our customers .
They have requested for a monthly full backup to be stored for 12 month retention.
They had requested for the same to be stored on cloud for the same considering onpremise storage space .
We have added an blob object storage from Azure and created a SOBR with the same as capacity tier and onpremise performance tier. We have configured the data to move after every 5 days from performance to capacity. Configured a monthly full backup with 12 restore points to be run on the last day of the month.
Movement of backups donot happen and currently 2 full backups have happened and have stored on the local onpremise repository.
Support initially stated that we would need to wait for 2 backups for the previous backup to move but this has not happened.Now they have stated the configuration should be part of a GFS configuration.
Nothing substantial interms of configuration has been provided clearly .
Need some help or recommendations for the same .
Note : Customer already has an existing backup chain onpremise for the same with incremental backups happening and this requirement to store on cloud is purely from a compliance standpoint.
