Multiple Buckets MSP Edition
Right, that makes sense. I was thinking about destination per user, but that seems a bit too granular. Most places we only back up a server, but we have a few customers with multiple users' machines we back up in addition to the server.
I did some research on Wasabi and found out about the 90 minimum charge for data. So, we'll probably just plan on 90 day retention as not to waste money. For DR purposes 30 days usually feels sufficient.
When the synthetic full backup runs, does it copy the previous full backup cloud to cloud? Or does it just reference it and say "keep this backup"? I'm wondering if synthetic full backup #2 & #3 will each use the same amount storage as the original full. Say Full #1 100 GB + Full #2 101 GB + Full #3 102 GB.
The way I understood the blog post is that it's going to be the same a regular monthly full, but instead of uploading from the local machine we are copying what's already there. Sort of "side-loading" into a new backup set. Is that correct?
