Google Cloud provides S3 Compatible Storage access-key and secret-keys via their XML APIs and Interoperability mode. To obtain your authentication keys please login to your account, navigate to Storage, select Settings and Interoperability tab, then Create a new key


Once you have your Access-key Secret-key you can create your LucidLink Filespace. Please select Google Cloud tile when creating your Filespace.


LucidLink will automatically create a bucket within your preferred region. 


You may specify a bucket name, if you do not, LucidLink will create a unique bucket based on your Filespace and Domain.

Or create the bucket in the correct region within Google Cloud by selecting BrowserCreate Bucket, specify a unique Name, choose Region and Location along with Create to submit.


After you select create you will notice the Filespace being prepared, which will take a minute to complete.

Once your Filespace is ready for initialization. If you have not done so previously, download and install the LucidLink client. Then follow the steps in the LucidLink web portal to initialize your Filespace.

Initializing your Filespace involves providing your credentials. You will also be asked for a root account password which is used to encrypt your Filespace to prevent unauthorized data access.

If you wish to specify additional options you can initialize manually with our command line, please review "lucid help init-s3" for further details such as data layout block size. review our Command line Filespace initialization KB for guidance. 

Example initialization string:

lucid init-s3 --fs <filespace.domain> --password <rootpassword> --https --endpoint --region <region> --access-key <accesskey> --secret-key <secretkey> --bucket-name <bucket> --provider Google
A complete list of Google Cloud Platform Regions and Zones
