As mentioned here, I’m planning on provisioning a Google Cloud server with enough Google Cloud Storage connected to it to (a) copy my current restic repo (which resides in Google Drive) to the presumably faster/more stable Google Cloud Storage, then (b) run
restic forget for all the snapshots I can discard plus
restic prune on it, then copying the repo back to Google Drive, then shutting everything down.
My rationale is that the few hours (or so I hope) that it would take for such an operation would be reasonably cheap, and (apart from running it in local storage, which is not really feasible in my case) would offer the best possible speed.
So, is anyone using Google Cloud Storage here? Any tips, configuration info, performance data (ie, how much TB/hour do you manage in your prunes, etc) would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
