S3 storage for backups

Post by stewsie »


If I want to use Amazon S3 as a repository to archive backups do I also need to use the Storage Gateway? I think not as from other threads it looks like you need that if you want to use VTL. I would just want to use an external S3 repository and then use Veeam policies to move backup/copy files when a set retention point is reached

Hello! No, you don't need anything else, as Veeam supports Amazon S3 natively. Thanks!

Just add S3 as an object repo in the backup repo section. I noticed you said external repo above and the external repo section in VBR is used for a different purpose.
