Hello Paul,

We have supported custom S3 endpoints since early 2010. Custom endpoints is how you support the S3 compatible APIs of third party (non-Amazon) vendors. Therefore this feature is already built in and it's very mature.

If the provider you are using does offer an S3-compatible JSON API you can use the "Upload to S3" post-processing engine. Per its documentation you need to use the "V2" Signature method and enter the Custom endpoint supplied by your provider.

In the case of InterRoute, the Custom endpoint is per their unnecessarily convoluted documentation. I can infer that from the "Setting up to use s3cmd" section in their documentation.
