Workload Quotas

TrilioVault enables Openstack administrators to set Project Quotas against the usage of TrilioVault.

The following Quotas can be set:

  • Number of Workloads a Project is allowed to have

  • Number of Snapshots a Project is allowed to have

  • Number of VMs a Project is allowed to protect

  • Amount of Storage a Project is allowed to use on the Backup Target
