Navigate to Data Harbors and click "+ New" to add a Wasabi Data Harbor.
3.9. In the New Data Harbor dialog box, add Description and assign the Wasabi Storage Locations created earlier to the Data Harbor by selecting the desired Wasabi Distribution and Recovery locations created in steps 3.3 to 3.8.
