For a start, I couldn't figure out how to sign up with Cloud Storage. I signed up at ovh.com (United States) and there is no Cloud Storage option. I guess this is available in a few regions?
For those, who have managed to sign up for Cloud Storage, I suspect this is just a SSH mountable directory. You can follow the instructions at https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-sshfs-to-mount-remote-file-systems-over-ssh to mount the directory at say "/var/backups". You can then use Cloudron's file system backend to backup files to OVH. But I cannot confirm if this works since I haven't tried this myself.
Thanks for the topic.
The OVH solution that I want to use is this one :
To enable it, you need an account, then a tenant on the Openstack Part of OVH.
You'r tutorial is quite intresting for one part but in case of failing backup (OVH unavailabled by exemple, that implied that we need to check on the server manually and not directly on the cloudron interface with swift/rsync compatibilities. But I can undestand that not easy to implement their solution..
The other solution is this one : https://www.ovh.com/world/public-cloud/storage/object-storage/ wich is simply the swift API.
I'm off for few days with limited access to my server. I will try to check your solution ASAP ! :-)
Okay so, the best way is to mount the cold backup bucket with this https://github.com/ovh/svfs and try to backup localy.
But this imply to let cloudron back up localy and the system server need to handdle the upload of backup.
If cloudron handle the backup upload that would be more secured.
There is https://cloud.scaleway.com witch is providing S3 storage for beta testing free but not in France saddly ... (Region NL)
Else, there is rclone wich handdle pretty well ovh, scaleway and minio server. What about implement the rclone control in the Webmin ?
Hello ! :)
An update ?

There is currently no update on this. As you mentioned earlier, if you can mount an external storage as a local filesystem, then the filesystem backup backend may work. The filesystem should support hardlinks though, you can read more about that at https://cloudron.io/documentation/backups/#filesystem

FWIW, I could never figure how to sign up to ovh because it always redirects me to the canada site which doesn't support cloud archive. Maybe I am missing something.
@nebulon Yes I know but I think it's a kind of "dirty intregation" regarding how much you have implemented Amazon/DigitalOcean S3 ... And I'm probably not the only one that need a backup in French Infrastructures. :)
@girish Hum, So bad because it's totally functionnal for me ... :( I don't know if there is some limitations for others countries.
