You can enable transfer acceleration when or after you create a share. Transfer acceleration increases the data transfer rate across regions by using the public bandwidth of a file gateway. This topic describes how to enable transfer acceleration for a file gateway.

Prerequisites

  1. A file gateway is created. For more information, see Create a file gateway.
  2. A cache disk is added to the file gateway. For more information, see Add a cache disk.
  3. An Object Storage Service (OSS) bucket is created. For more information, see Create Buckets.
  4. Transfer acceleration is enabled for the OSS bucket. For more information, see Configure transfer acceleration.

Procedure

To enable transfer acceleration, perform the following steps:

  1. Log on to the Cloud Storage Gateway console.
  2. Select the region where the file gateway is deployed.
  3. On the Gateways page, click the file gateway to open the Share tab.
  4. On the Share tab, click Create.
  5. On the Bucket Setting tab, set the required parameters and click Next. For more information about how to set the parameters, see Manage a file gateway in the Cloud Storage Gateway console.
  6. On the Basic Information tab, set the required parameters and click Next.
Note For more information about how to set the parameters, see Manage a file gateway in the Cloud Storage Gateway console.
  1. On the Advanced Settings tab, set the required parameters to enable transfer acceleration, and click Next.
Note For more information about how to set the parameters, see Manage a file gateway in the Cloud Storage Gateway console.
When you enable transfer acceleration, note that:
  • If transfer acceleration is enabled for the file gateway but is not enabled for the OSS bucket, transfer acceleration does not take effect.
  • If transfer acceleration is enabled for the file gateway and the OSS bucket, transfer acceleration takes effect.
  1. On the Confirmation tab, confirm your settings, and then click Completed.

After the share is created, you can click Create to check whether transfer acceleration is enabled.
