Offsite replication for virtual machine backups

Once you have configured offsite replication settings, the following options will be available in the Protect a virtual machine wizard.

#Offsite retention period
Specify how long your want an offsite backup to remain before it is deleted.
NOTE: once a backup is removed from an S3 storage location it is not possible to restore it

#Override default checkpoint
The lower the value, the more full backups will be uploaded to S3. Making restores from S3 quicker. However the higher the value, the more incremental backups to S3 will be uploaded. which consumes less bandwidth but restores will take longer.
