Understanding the HubStor Topology

Understanding the HubStor Topology

The HubStor cloud archive environment can scale out at different levels in the topology.

At minimum, every HubStor tenant consists of the following:
  • Hub -- The Hub is top-level point in your HubStor architecture. Every HubStor tenant will only have one Hub. 
    • StorSite -- Under the Hub exists at least one StorSite. A StorSite maps to an Azure datacenter region. For larger organizations that require data sovereignty for certain countries, or that have multiple office locations requiring archive services, multiple StorSites can be provisioned.
      • Stor -- Each StorSite will have at least one Stor. A Stor is the actual archive repository where archived content will reside. Each Stor is configured with its unique metadata, versioning, redundancy, WORM, and policies for tagging, retention, and indexing.

Scaling out a HubStor environment -- adding more Stors under a StorSite, or another StorSite under the Hub -- does not create silos. From an administration, security, and search perspective, HubStor federates across the entire topology.
