Snapshot Tracking

Headline:
Snapshot tracking to locate and assess them


Description:
Many organizations track their snapshots using various methods, from manual to custom scripts. If a tab or section could be added to individual clouds that support snapshots and maybe an aggregate under Operations > Guidance, which could add alerting or other ways to view that them for clean. Snapshots can be currently seen at the Instance and VM level but this would expose them more easily.

Using VMware as an example, there are some best practices many organizations follow. Specifically, the “Do not use a single snapshot for more than 72 hours” because of potential performance issues.

For AWS, there are costs associated with these snapshots, in addition to the sprawl.

Providing a way to flag these for admins or provide alerts to those that created them via Morpheus would be my Idea. Possibly a configurable soft/hard retention or guidance for snapshots and possibly a # of them.
