Google Cloud Storage - Bucket Lock

Google Cloud Storage - Bucket Lock

40 minutes 5 Credits


Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs


In this lab, you learn how to use Google Cloud Storage (GCS) Bucket Lock.

GCS allows you to configure object retention with temporary retention, a specific Retention Policy which automatically tracks retention expiration for objects, and even event based holds which allow you determine when a Retention Policy begins.

With Bucket Lock, you can meet regulatory and compliance requirements, such as those associated with FINRA, SEC, and CFTC. You can also use Bucket Lock to address certain health care industry retention regulations.

Combined with GCS Object Lifecycle Management, you can create a complete data retention strategy, for example automatically removing data from buckets when retention policies are met.
