Lyve Cloud with Rubrik

In this section, you will learn how to deploy Lyve Cloud with Rubrik.


Before deployment, you will need the following:

  • A Lyve Cloud storage account.
  • Permission with All Operations.
  • A Rubrik account.

Configuration overview

The configuration for Lyve Cloud with Rubrik is divided into two simple tasks.

  1. Create a Lyve Cloud Storage Account. For more information, see Provisioning storage buckets.
  2. Create a new cloud storage target on Rubrik using information from Lyve Cloud.

Create a new storage target on Rubrik

Using the credentials from your Lyve Cloud account, complete the following steps:

  1. Click the Rubrik Dashboard gear icon and select Archival Locations.

  1. Select + to add a new archival location. Enter the following details:
  • Archive Type: Select Object Store.
  • Object Store Vendor: Select S3 Compatible.
  • Access Key: Enter your Lyve Cloud Access Key.
  • Secret Key: Enter your Lyve Cloud Secret Key.
  • Host Name: Enter the bucket endpoint URL.
  • Bucket Prefix: Enter your bucket prefix.
 Note—The Bucket Prefix in Rubrik must match the bucket name in Lyve Cloud.

If the bucket does not exist in Lyve Cloud, it will create new bucket(s) with a prefix. These buckets are prefixed with a naming convention: <prefix>-rubrik-<number>. For example, abc-rubrik-0.

  • Number of Buckets: Enter the number of buckets associated with the prefix.
  • Archive Location Name: Enter an archive location name.

  • RSA key: Enter the RSA key. If you do not have an RSA key, you must generate and paste the key. For more information, see Generating RSA key.

Select Add.

  1. Select SLA Domain in the menu. To create a new SLA Domain or edit a Rubrik SLA template, set the following:
  • SLA Domain Name: Enter the domain name.
  • Continuous Data Protection: Leave toggle in defaulted position.
  • Advanced Frequencies: Leave toggle in default position.
  • Take Snapshots: Set the frequency of snapshots for Hours, Days, and Months.
  • Keep Snapshots: Set duration to keep snapshots for Days and Months.
  • Snapshot Window: Specify the duration to take snapshots from and the first full snapshot.

Select Next.

  1. Set Archiving and Replication Rules to customize archiving and retention periods on-premises or in the cloud.

Specify the following details:

  • Retention on Brik: Set the on-premises retention period.
  • Archiving: Toggle on. Choose the Archival Location Name from step 1 and select Enable Instant Archive.
  • Replication: Leave toggle in the default position.

Select Next.

  1. Review settings under Review Impact and select Submit when finished.

Generate an RSA key

The RSA key is used for encryption. An RSA key can be generated on any system with the OpenSSL toolkit (common on Linux and Mac OS).

To generate an RSA key:

  1. Run the following command on the command line:
# sudo openssl genrsa -out rubrik_encryption_key.pem 2048

  1. The command generates the required key and writes it to a file called rubrik_encryption_key.pem. To view the key, execute the following command:
# cat rubrik_encryption_key.pem

This image shows an example of an RSA key.

The key is the entire contents of the file, including the -----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY----- and -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY----- markers.

  1. Copy and paste the content of key file in the RSA key field.
