Feature request: Direct Amazon S3 repository

Post by Ejdesgaard »


Is it possible to connect an S3 tendent as a repository in Veeam B&R or CC ?

We have CEPH* running and it can expose an implementation of the Amazon S3 interface
It would be really nice if B/R & CC can utilize this storage feature, both for local and cloud/SR scenarioes

* what is CEPH:

This is not available. The ability to send sealed backups to S3 is coming in update 4 and this will be based on a policy of how long before it is sent.

There is no direct though.

Hi Mike,
Any further news on this S3 native backup beta? Storage gateway has not worked out at all. Would prefer an integrated solution rather than having to cobble up "intermediaries" - nice short term fix at best.

We did not announce any specific plans around the ability to back up directly to object storage yet, so beta questions are a bit premature ;) having said that, I am sure we will have this capability one day, because object storage is the future!
