Third-Party Object Storage Offloading Software
These third-party applications are designed to help upload files to cloud storage.
What is Supported
Third-party object storage gateway software is only supported if all backup data written to the repository by Veeam Backup & Replication remains on the repository, and that third-party software will only upload copies of the backup data to the object storage.
What is Not Supported
Third-party object storage gateway software that modified the on-prem files after it has uploaded them to object storage is not supported. For example, the third-party software Tiger Bridge has a setting for "space reclaiming," which replaces the on-prem files it has uploaded to the cloud with "nearline files," which are essentially stub files containing no content. If Veeam Backup & Replication attempts to interact with these stub files, it will interpret the lack of file content as being due to file corruption.
