Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4 or later
Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 v4 or later

Directly integrated object storage
Amazon AWS S3 (including GovCloud and ChinaCloud) + Immutability support
Microsoft Azure Blob Storage (including Government Cloud, Azure Data Box)
IBM Cloud Object Storage (both cloud object storage and on-premises offering)

S3-compatible object storage
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.

Below you can find the list of object storage that passed API compatibility tests. Please perform the performance tests of the chosen storage system to ensure it meets your needs before making 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 object storage solution).

Veeam also has the Veeam Ready Object storage verification program that gives our Alliance Partners the possibility to verify compatibility AND performance levels. Only a subset of object storage listed below will be eligible or compatible with the requirements of the Veeam Ready Object program. Additionally, not all vendors may apply for the program. 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 Object verification status.

Object Storage Gateways can be only used if both the gateway and the object storage behind implement a subset of S3 operations leveraged by Veeam.
