Retention policies within Backup & Disaster Recovery

Backups can be configured to daily, weekly and monthly roll-ups, whereas previously all restore points were preserved. For customers who perform frequent backups, this requires far less space on the Cloud Failover Appliance (CFA) and prevents the need to replace overfilled hardware. In addition, this allows customers to configure the long-term retention to optimize the cost and benefit requirements.
