Veeam Backup & Replication
The hierarchy and granularity of the stored metadata also affect the database structure of the backend systems used by IONOS to provide IONOS S3 Object Storage.
This leads to increased performance requirements for the storage system and longer response times for queries from our customers. This can therefore also affect the recovery times when retrieving data from the S3 storage.
Please inform us in advance if you plan on using Veeam together with IONOS S3 Object Storage. We will need additional information to implement custom policies in order to optimize your new and existing S3 repositories.
- IONOS contract number and support PIN
- Names of buckets used with Veeam
- A maintenance time window, during which we can implement the policy. Please keep your time window within business hours; Monday to Friday 08:00 - 17:00 CET.
With the Custom Policies, we will also add a Bucket Lifecycle Policy to the Veeam Bucket, which will automatically remove the expired Deletion Marker. This is done by us and can be reviewed by you, as shown in the screenshot below.
