File gateways support the remote sync feature, which synchronizes data in the associated Object Storage Service (OSS) bucket to the file gateway.


  • When multiple Cloud Storage Gateway (CSG) instances use the same OSS bucket, data stored in the OSS bucket can be shared among these CSG instances.
  • You can use the remote sync feature to restore data from the associated OSS bucket to a CSG instance.
    • The ignore delete and remote sync features are mutually exclusive.
    • The default time delay of the remote sync feature is 36,000 seconds.

Configure remote sync

You can enable the remote sync feature when you create a CSG instance. For more information, see Create a share.
