Description Greg Scott 2019-03-06 16:47:54 UTC
Description of problem:

RHV includes engine-backup, and customers can set up cron jobs and other automation to use this backup facility as they see fit. This RFE asks for automation to implement the next step and actually perform backups to a default location, at a default time, with default retention settings, with the ability to easily modify all those default settings.

Such a system should also have a means to verify the integrity of the backups and report on problems. It may also be desirable to report on backup start/finish events, but keep success reports minimal so people pay attention to problem reports.

Competitive products offer this capability. Adding this to RHV will help Red Hat sell more RHV and answer existing customer concerns.
