Hi Mark,

We are interested (and dutch, we can get some coffee ;)), also experimenting with ceph backup on this moment. 
Internal test with https://github.com/EnterpriseVE/eve4pve-barc

If you are using Ceph, I guess this is a better route because of the speed of the backup solution.

Onderwerp: [PVE-User] Backup to S3-compatible storage using vzdump


I'm working at Tuxis, we specialize in hosting infrastructure, supplying services to our customers on which they can build their own products.

We sell Proxmox clusters, and obviously, they need to be backed up. In addition to our default backup solution, we have dadup.eu, which is S3- compatible storage.

Waking up this morning, I thought "Why can't I vzdump my images to dadup!?" So I was just looking into this. And s3fs is not suited for large files so hacking this together is a bad idea.

But, it should be pretty nice if Proxmox allowed for an S3-compatible storage, for backups only. Vzdump output could be piped through an encryption layer (optionally) and `split` to create a bunch of smaller files.

Proxmox should be able to do a LIST on the bucket and see which VM's have backups and restore from it, just like a normal storage-point.

I'm able to and willing to invest time and effort into making this reality, as well as sponsoring an S3-compatible platform where we can test towards. But I'm looking for people that are interested in this option and would use it. No use in writing stuff nobody would use.
