More information
Veeam will support any object storage that implements a subset of S3 API leveraged by Veeam, and uses v4 signature version. The list of required S3 API calls can be requested by the vendor from Veeam Alliances team.

The S3-compatible object storage listed above is compatible on API level, but is not guaranteed to perform well. We recommend you test performance levels to ensure they meet your requirements before making the purchase decision. One unexpected performance bottleneck can be mass object deletions during retention processing, when large multi-TB backups are being removed. This is an importance test, because in extreme cases, mass object delete operations may impact object storage availability and stability (this largely depends on the choice of NOSQL database engine behind the given solution).

Veeam also has the Veeam Ready object storage verification program that enables our Technology Alliance Partners to verify both the compatibility AND performance levels. Not all vendors may choose to participate in this program, and some may not meet its performance requirements. However, Veeam will support any object storage that implements the required subset of S3 API and uses v4 signature version regardless of its Veeam Ready status.

If you have tested object storage that is not listed above, please PM me the results of your tests, and I will update the list.
