As announced in VeeamON 2023, the release 12a (or 12.1) of the Veeam Data Platform is coming soon. In addition to bringing new cybersecurity features, one of the focuses is improving the ability to protect data stored in Object Storage.
It is a critical demand for organizations to store data related to modern applications or any unstructured data related to the business.
It will be possible to take data from object storage and store it in backup repositories of any type: block, file, object storage, or even tape.
There will be flexible recoveries in restoring the entire buckets, including permissions, attributes, and tags.
You will perform granular recoveries on individual objects and restore specific object versions. Of course, the immutability, the ability to define object version, object archive, and Backup Copy will be supported.
This is all based on the NAS backup technology of Veeam Backup & Replication. Let’s wait for this new version!

This is going to be an interesting feature for sure.  Already testing this in my lab and it works well. 👍

Finally, we will soon be able to protect data in object storage in several ways.

Thanks, @Moustafa_Hindawi !

We back up directly to S3-compatible storage and it consumes instance licensing. We would then like to back up that S3-compatible storage to tape every once in a while. Any chance that will be possible without having to pay for the S3/NAS licensing since we’re backing up the same objects twice? In this way we could backup our S3 buckets to tape for long term storage to minimize our S3 costs without having to have an on-site repository that stores the VM instances just to get around paying for NAS licensing to backup the “same” data twice.

Hi @SHerman393939 ! I suggest waiting for Veeam's licensing policy update when v12.1 and this functionality are available.
