Velero plugin system

Velero has a plugin system which allows integration with a variety of providers for backup storage and volume snapshot operations. Please see the links on the left under Plugins.

Anyone can add integrations for any platform to provide additional backup and volume storage without modifying the Velero codebase.

Creating a new plugin

To write a plugin for a new backup or volume storage platform, take a look at our example repo and at our documentation for how to develop plugins.

Adding a new plugin

After you publish your plugin on your own repository, open a PR that adds a link to it under the appropriate list of supported providers page in our documentation.
