CloudBerry Backup is a Windows program that automates encrypted and compressed data cloud backup.
This guide describes how to configure CloudBerry with DreamObjects.
This tutorial references the Windows Server version of the program, but the basic steps carry over to other versions.
Setting up CloudBerry Backup with DreamObjects
- Launch CloudBerry.
- Select the ‘Backup Plans’ tab, then choose the 'Files' option.
- Select the 'Local or Cloud Backup' option and click the Next button.
- Click 'Add new Storage Account'.
- Select 'DreamObjects' from the list of 'Other Providers'.
- Enter the following DreamObjects credentials which can be found on the (Panel > 'Cloud Services' > 'DreamObjects') page:
- Display Name – A unique name you wish to display
- Access Key – Use the Access Key found under the username on the DreamObjects page for the specific bucket name
- Secret Key – Use the Secret Key found to the left of the Access Key on the DreamObjects page (also known as the password)
- Service Point – Use objects-us-east-1.dream.io
This article uses the new DreamObjects cluster of 'objects-us-east-1.dream.io'. If you have an older DreamObjects account and have not migrated your data yet, your hostname may need to point to 'objects-us-west-1.dream.io' instead. Please review the following migration article for further details.
