Make backup and images possible for servers with more than 80Gb of data
This is an imposed restriction to prevent the local disk from filling up. Going forward, all backups and snapshots will be placed in your Cloud Files account. Some users are already able to do this. We are working to make all backups and snapshots go to your respective Cloud Files account and then you will be able to save as many backups as yo want.
We are eagerly looking forward to this, however I'm wondering if these larger snapshots are going to cause issues with disk I/O, particularly on huddles / servers that are near capacity. We've been experiencing this issue with normal 2GB servers on one of our hosts. Creating a new server or a backup shouldn't tank the host. Unfortunately unlike RAM or CPU, throwing more hardware at the problem likely won't fix this one.
