Velero’s AWS Object Store plugin uses Amazon’s Go SDK to connect to the AWS S3 API. Some third-party storage providers also support the S3 API, and users have reported the following providers work with Velero:
Note that these storage providers are not regularly tested by the Velero team.
Some storage providers, like Quobyte, may need a different signature algorithm version.
In the case you want to take volume snapshots but didn’t find a plugin for your provider, Velero has support for snapshotting using restic. Please see the restic integration documentation.
