Change Azure snapshot backups from LRS to GRS
Sorry but this is a must. GRS is a 2 region datacenter backup, LRS only 1. Fire or disaster will take out everything if LRS is used.
I totally agree with Benjamin on this subject. This functionality must be implemented to provide backup availability in the event of a disaster.
We are starting to use Atlas in Azure Canada-Central and we are already using Azure SQL Database services with backup on this type of storage.
Without it, we will have to copy the snapshot outside of Atlas. So this situation is not desirable.
Best option is to be able to chose this feature. In development it could be acceptable but not in production with critical systems.
