Backup Schedule Rotation

Hello,


for the Backup Schedule a rotation is missing.

So customer can say: let's hold 7 backups, then oldest will be deleted.


Also I do not see incremental backups option to reduce backup space.


Thanks

Hi Marco, thank you for your feedback!


Yes, on the current moment we don't have rotation settings for backups and yes of course we will add it.


About incremental backups option to reduce backup space, I think in nowadays such option not so necessary because of filesystems like ZFS and it's deduplication feature which allows save space transparently for you.

Hi Oleg,


Not doing incrementals also means using considerably more bandwith and time to transfer the backups to the backup node and the ZFS de-duplication of a full backup will still be a lot larger than an incremental backup would be.

Hello,


thanks for your reply.

So for backup node, we should use ZFS filesystem on partition where backups stored? Right?

So please update your docu with this important information.


Thanks
