Define maximum number of saved backups in Service Plan
As an administrator you currently can define the maximum number of full backups to store. This maximum number applies to all backups, stored locally or remote.
This is a feature request for:a) defining a separate maximum for locally stored backups and a separate maximum for remotely stored backups. b) as well defining those maximum numbers in service plans.
The option to define the maximum number of stored backups in a service plan would allow administrators to fulfill backup needs on a per customer basis. And even sell additional backups to customers who might have a need for much longer backup retention.
Defining a separate maximum value for local and remote backups is useful as backups can take up a lot of space. Local disk space is usually more costly than remote backup space. Having the ability to set a strict limit for locally saved backups and a more lenient limit for remote backups would help to manage disk space usage.
Thank you for your idea! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular.
Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.
