Which use cases are not a good fit for bucket replication via WCSM?

The following use-cases/requirements are not a good fit for bucket replication via WCSM as of today, however we are looking to support them in the near future.

1. Replicating data between buckets in different continents

At the moment, we can replicate data between any regions within the same continent. For example, you can replicate data between any of the 4 US regions and Toronto in Canada. Similarly, you can replicate data between the 4 regions in Europe, but NOT from a US region to a European region. We also support bucket replication between Tokyo and Osaka in our APAC regions list.

Sydney and Singapore are not supported today but are on the roadmap once we have at least 1 datacenter in proximity to them.

2. Veeam data replication to an Object Lock enabled bucket

WCSM can replicate any type of data whether it is from a standard bucket or Object Locked bucket, however Veeam backup application requires the Object Lock settings to be applied and corresponding data to be uploaded through the Veeam application itself. Hence, at the moment it is not recommended to use WCSM to replicate Veeam data to an Object Lock bucket.

You can replicate Veeam data to a standard bucket without hitting any incompatibilities.  

3. Replicating Rubrik backup data

Rubrik application requires all data towards cloud to be uploaded via Rubrik backup application. Hence, at this time we do not recommend using WCSM for replicating Rubrik backup data.

4. Replicating version-id

WCSM can replicate latest version of an object to a bucket (with versioning enabled). The version IDs on the replica bucket will be unique however, and will not match the source bucket version IDs.
