» Manta Storage Backend

The Manta storage backend is used to persist Vault's data in Triton's Manta Object Storage. The storage folder must already exist.

  • No High Availability – the Manta storage backend does not support high availability.

  • Community Supported – the Manta storage backend is supported by the community. While it has undergone review by HashiCorp employees, they may not be as knowledgeable about the technology. If you encounter problems with them, you may be referred to the original author.
