Rustic supports to store the repository in a so-called cold storage. These are storages which are designed for long-term storage and offer usually cheap storage for the price of retarded or expensive access. Examples are Amazon S3 Glacier or OVH Cloud Archive.
To use a cold storage and not access any data in the storage for every-day
operations, rustic needs an extra repository to store hot data. This repository
can be specified by the
--hot-repo option or the
environmental variable, e.g.:
rustic -r rclone:foo:bar --repo-hot rclone:foo:bar-hot init
In this example in the repository
rclone:foo:bar all data is saved. In the
rclone:foo:bar-hot only hot data is saved, i.e. this is not a
Warning: You have to specify both the cold repository (using
-r) and the
hot repository (using
--repo-hot) in the
init command and all other commands
which access and work with the repository.
