@bitter-oil-46081 is jotting down an FAQ to cover this question more thoroughly. This should be posted soon, @bitter-oil-46081 can you reply back here with a URL? The quick answer is that the backend provider has been built to be pluggable, but that we only have two implementations at the moment. (See We do have on-premise-style hosting plans for our commercial, but am guessing you'd be more interested in the pluggable backend.

The FAQ is now posted. There's no way to point it at S3, but as Joe mentions you could consider providing your own back-end implementation (or augment the local one to also understand s3 somehow). In the limited time we used the local backend ourselves, the process of moving the checkpoints to S3 we handled via scripts that ran before and after deployment.
