SODA Multicloud provides a cloud vendor agnostic data management for hybrid cloud, intercloud, or intracloud. The goal is to provide a unified interface to support file, block, and object services across multiple cloud vendors.
Archiving data which is important but intermittently used, is valuable to keep it safe and also save cost and resource. Retrieving the archived data whenever required as per need and also retrieving it when the local data is lost is an important requirement for Availability and Business continuity. More details about the architecture and use cases can be found at ObjectArchivalRestore
This guide shows how to archive objects into Cloud object storage and restore them as and when required, meeting the SLAs. This will illustrate the operations through SODA Dashboard.
To refer the API specs, please check Cloud Object Archival API Specs
Currently this feature is available only for AWS, Azure and GCP cloud as backend and SONY-ODA as on-premise Cold storage
Please refer SODA installation using Ansible Or Check the developer guide multi-cloud local cluster installation through repo

Once the restoration of object is inititated, it may take time for the availability of the object to be downloaded. Refer cloud vendor docs for the availability corresponding to the chosen Retrieval Tier
Once the restoration of object is complete, the object can be downloaded by clicking on the Download Operation
