Re: Snapshots

Yeah, we definitely want to do so.

I think what you are proposing makes sense in terms of expiring snapshots
in the background though I can see some interesting IaaS specifics about
keeping around snapshots of disks even after deleting a disk.

I'll try to add a snapshots proposal doc to bosh-notes.

Hi Guys,

Are there any plans to improve Snapshot functionality in BOSH to include
some sort of retention policy?

The reason I’m asking this, is because if snapshots are meant to be used
as a backup, surely the only way a snapshot should be deleted is if it
‘expires’? I’ve just experienced an accidental VM deletion only to find
that the accidental deletion also deleted the snapshots associated with
such VM. Should deleted instances really cleanup their associated snapshots?
