Mix different object storage provider

Post by cristiano.cumer »

Hello Forum,

it's supported to mix different storage provider?

For example Wasabi for Capacity and Amazon Glacier for Archive? :shock:

Thanks!

No, that will not work.
For the archive tier, the data needs to be on the capacity tier of the same provider.

https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... ml?ver=110
Each type of repository that can be added as an archive extent is compatible only with corresponding type of repository configured as a capacity extent:

- To add Amazon S3 Glacier as an archive extent, select Amazon S3 repository in the capacity tier settings. If you do not have an Amazon S3 repository as a capacity extent of your scale-out backup repository, you must first configure it.

- To add Microsoft Azure Archive storage as an archive extent, select Microsoft Azure Blob repository in the capacity tier settings. If you do not have a Microsoft Azure Blob repository as a capacity extent of your scale-out backup repository, you must first configure it.

Thanks!

Let's hope for the future that archiving form a S3 compatible provider to Amazon Glacier will be supported.

The rationale behind this:
Cheap intermediate S3 storage that I can lose without problems, GFS backups stored on Amazon for long there retention, as Amazon will be there for a foreseeable future.
