Overview of Background Exports and the Export Service

The async/background export feature supports two use cases:
  1. Self-service user bulk downloads -- The Export Service can be ideal if you are storing large files in the cloud and wish to mitigate data proliferation by designating approved download locations. Users can see their content in the End User Portal. Upon selecting a folder, they can click the 'Background export...' option. They will see a list of preconfigured locations to which they can download the content from HubStor. The bulk download is performed in the background and the user receives an email notification when the download has completed.

  2. Administratively configured one-way sync out of HubStor -- The Export Service can also be used to do a one-time push or recurring one-way synchronization of content from HubStor to a location external to HubStor (e.g. storage in a remote office). The functionality to administratively configure a one-way sync out of HubStor is found in the 'Content App' in the HubStor Admin Portal.

To support either use case, you must first install and configure the Export Service. See HOW TO INSTALL AND CONFIGURE THE EXPORT SERVICE.

For the end-user experience with background exports, see HOW TO RUN BACKGROUND EXPORTS.

To setup a one-time push or recurring one-way sync, see HOW TO CONFIGURE ONE-WAY SYNC OUT OF HUBSTOR.
