Centrifuge custom index

I've used centrifuge locally to generate an index based on the GenBank database. The output of this operation is 4 files with the *.cf extension. once I try to use them to run a centrifuge run on the cloud it asks for the index in tar.gz format. what does it mean? Then I'm trying to run the indexing on the cloud but I've found only a pipe to use RefSeq but not GenBank and in general, I would like to do it locally to have more freedom. now I'm running this script on the cloud: "Reference Index Creation " to create an index based on RefSeq and have the output in tar format but it is not exactly what I want to do. there is a way to have the index in tar format with centrifuge locally or to use genbank database in this cloud app to generate the index?
