I want to create a remote repository for the backup of my local infrastructure. I'm using Veeam v10.

I think I need a remote machine with a Veeam component installed, then I was wondering if I can build a EC2 Windows machine with Veeam with S3 as storage.

The goal is to transfer from my site to EC2 only the incremental backup (I cannot transfer a full with my bandwith!) and let the machine compute and merge backup in a reverse incremental backup. Is this a good configuration? Is it possibile to use EC2 with a S3 storage for veeam repository?

You can actually connect to S3 bucket from EC2 instance. https://aws.amazon.com/premiumsupport/knowledge-center/ec2-instance-access-s3-bucket/ So you can build it. However, in case you have Veeam Enterprise and Enterprise Plus editions you can use SOBR to configure AWS S3 as a backup repository. https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/vsphere/adding_amazon_object_storage.html?ver=100 Another possible alternative is to use StarWind VTL free to store backups directly to AWS S3. https://www.starwindsoftware.com/starwind-cloud-vtl-for-veeam
