Object Storage Repository

An object storage repository is a repository intended for long-term data storage and based on either a cloud solution or an S3 compatible storage solution.

Veeam Backup & Replication supports the following types of object storage repositories:

  • IBM Cloud
  • Microsoft Azure Blob and Data Box
  • Amazon S3 and AWS Snowball Edge
  • S3 compatible

Object storage repositories can be used in the following ways:

  • In Scale-Out Backup Repository as a part of Capacity Tier. Capacity tier of scale-out backup repository allows to offload existing backup data directly to cloud-based object storage such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure Blob Storage and IBM Cloud Object Storage, or using on-premises S3 compatible devices. For more information, see Capacity Tier.
