Wasabi is a member of Veeam's cloud partner ecosystem and we have worked with Veeam on several different methods for interfacing your Veeam environment with Wasabi (as summarized below):
- Native S3 interface: Veeam is planning to introduce a native S3 interface later in 2018 as part of Release 9.5 update 4. As of September 2018, this release is available in beta form for select end users and partners. This native S3 interface will allow Veeam customers to use S3-compatible storage such as Wasabi as an Archive Tier in Veeam. Veeam customers should contact their Veeam account team for details on this. Wasabi has verified interoperability with this new Veeam capability.
- VTL (virtual tape library) Gateway approach: This approach involves using a third-party product that interfaces with Veeam over a VTL interface and Wasabi over an S3 interface. Examples of third-party products that support this capability include BridgeSTOR's Rio-2 and StarWind VTL. This capability works with any Veeam version that supports VTL.
- CloudBerry Lab approach: This approach also utilizes a third-party product as described in this article. This capability works with any Veeam version.
