For default installations, DKP deploys Velero integrated with Rook Ceph, operating inside the same cluster.

For production use-cases, D2iQ advises to provide an external storage class to use with Rook Ceph. See the Ceph Configuration topic for more information.

Cloud Provider Storage

If you do not want to use Rook Ceph for storing Velero backups and you can configure Velero to use cloud provider storage.
