            Best practice for S3 backups' frequency and retention

            S3 backups are meant for low-frequency (weekly,monthly, yearly), long-term (over 3 months) retention backups.



            Not following these recommendation will actually cost you money, instead of saving.
            Also, running S3 backup daily may cause failures, as S3 backup/cleanup is a time consuming process, which may take over 24 hours.
