Does xbcloud have any plans to support “storage_class” option?

Hi rluisr
Thanks for your question.
Currently we’re only supporting Swift and please note too that xbcloud is in its alpha phase. Please don’t rely on it as your only means of backup, as it’s not production ready. I’m sure you realize that, but I have to be sure to point it out. :slight_smile:
If you would like to input to the product development to encourage support for storage_class, the best thing would be to create a JIRA request at
That way, the engineering teams will recognize the request and you will be able to follow progress/receive feedback about it.

Hi lorraaine.

yeah I know that xbcloud is beta but use it on production and working perfectly.

thanks link!

Let me quote here:

And if you want to know more about PXB 8.0:

Please let me know if this is what you have been searching for.

Have a great weekend.

hi vinicius.

storage_class means s3 storage_class.

xbcloud does not support it with --storage=s3 currently.

I will submit a request on JIRA.
