Adding S3 Repositories

In this article

    You can use only existing Amazon S3 buckets as S3 repositories. Before you add an Amazon S3 bucket as an S3 repository, check limitations.


    If you add to the Veeam Backup for AWS configuration database an S3 repository where you store VPC configuration backups created by Veeam backup service, these VPC configuration backups will be automatically added to the Veeam Backup for AWS database. For more information on the retention policy that will be applied to these backups, see VPC Configuration Backup Retention.

    To add an S3 repository, complete the following steps:

    1. Launch the Add Repository wizard.
    2. Specify an S3 repository name and description.
    3. Select an IAM role to access the target Amazon S3 bucket.
    4. Configure S3 repository settings.
    5. Enable data encryption for the S3 repository.
    6. Finish working with the wizard.
