Proxmox Backup Server and Wasabi Cloud Storage


Nov 27, 2020
I found a repo that can easy mount a wasabi Store/bucket to pbs. My question is, ho to mount it thatway, i can set it as backup repository?
or is it only possible to cronjob the data frome the pbs backup store to that mounted storage to get it uploading?

Repo used:

I would strongly advise against using the mounted object storage as a datastore directly, this will likely perform horribly. However, syncing the datastore contents to the mounted storage, e.g. via a cron job should be okay.

that would be a better option, can you tell me the main stepts how to do?
Well, I cannot go into much detail since I have never done anything like this ;)
It should be pretty straight forward, simply mount your cloud storage using the s3fs-fuse tool (it appears that there are examples on the Github page) and then use e.g. rsync to copy the datastore contents to the mounted cloud storage. Afterwards, you might want to unmount the cloud storage. You can put these steps in a script and run the script via a cronjob or a systemd timer.
