Summary

This article lists some general guidance for using object storage in combination with these Veeam products.

Considerations and Limitations

Amazon S3 and S3 Compatible Object Storage

Support for Amazon S3 and S3 compatible object storage varies between products. The following limitations apply:

  • Versioning is not required unless object lock is enabled.
  • Support for AWS Signature v4 is required.

Veeam manages the entire data lifecycle of backups stored within AWS. As such, Lifecycle policies are not supported nor needed. For AWS, it is recommended that you use S3 bucket policies to restrict access to specific endpoints or IP addresses.

Azure Blob Object Storage

Support for Azure Blob object storage varies between products. The following limitations currently apply to all Veeam products:

Veeam manages the entire data lifecycle of backups stored within Azure. As such, configuring the storage account with these features is unnecessary, and doing so can result in data loss. More details are available in the Object Storage Repository Considerations and Limitations section of the Veeam Backup & Replication user guide.

For Azure, it is recommended that you use Azure Storage Firewall policies to restrict access to specific IP addresses.
