We have a multi-tenant CSP ShareFile account with a single StorageZone.  I would like to add a secondary StorageZone (for redundancy) but I believe that I cannot do this as our current zone is using direct attached storage.  I would like to create a new zone with both primary and secondary StorageZones and then migrate my users to this.   Is this possible without having to have my clients move all of their data manually?

It sounds like the main challenge here is moving the object store to a new location? I would recommend 2x checking this with support but you can copy the entire folder structure of the object store to a new location and then update the SZ configuration. There are other considerations too...backup SZ config before doing anything, backup all data, making sure nobody is updating files before you make the final cutover... which is why i would recommend 2x checking with support before you start.
