Step 4. Specify Object Storage Settings

At the Bucket step of the wizard, specify the bucket and folder where you will store data, and define storage limits and immutability settings that Veeam Backup & Replication will apply to data in the object storage.

  1. In the Bucket field, enter a name of the bucket or click Browse to get the necessary bucket.

Note that you must create the bucket where you want to store your backup data beforehand.

  1. In the Folder field, enter a cloud folder name to which you want to map your object storage repository. Alternatively, click Browse and either select an existing folder or click New Folder.
  1. Select the Limit object storage consumption to check box to define a soft limit that can be exceeded temporarily for your object storage consumption. Provide the value in TB or PB.
  2. Select the Make recent backups immutable for check box to prohibit deletion of blocks of data from object storage. Specify the immutability period. For more information, see Immutability.

Note that the maximum immutability period you can set in the Veeam Backup & Replication UI is 90 days. If you want to set immutability to a longer period, use the Set-VBRAmazonS3CompatibleRepository cmdlet.
