In this tutorial, you will learn how to use the Cargo Bays feature to attach your Tardigrade storage account to Galileo and back up your files to your cloud storage.
You can use Cargo Bays to easily perform compute functions on your data stored in Tardigrade. You can also use Galileo as an easy interface to manage and share data in your Tardigrade account without using an uplink CLI!
This tutorial assumes you already have a Tardigrade account and that you know which region your account was created in. It also assumes that you have pre-configured a Tardigrade project.
Getting started with Storj in Galileo
To access Cargo Bays, sign in to Galileo and click on the “Cargo Bays” tab on the left menu.
Access Cargo Bays
Start by clicking Add Cargo Bay. You will then be prompted to choose between Dropbox or Storj. This tutorial highlights Storj, so select Storj.
Connect your Tardigrade account to Galileo. You will need to:
- Name the cargo bay
- Provide the name for the corresponding Bucket name. You can choose the name of an exisiting Bucket or a new name and Galileo will create the Bucket for you
- Provide the Storj Satellite Region
- Enter the API Key
- Enter the Encryption Passphrase
- Provide an optional description for the Cargo Bay
Once you’re ready, click Create.
Choose the root folder for the Cargo Bay. If you are creating a new Bucket, a folder with the name “Root Folder” will be created for you.
Choose the root folder
The Cargo Bay has now been created and is visible on the Cargo Bays tab in Galileo.
