Versioning: The hidden savings
If you're storing  your data in the cloud, why take advantage of the cloud's tendency to always keep three copies. With snapshots, I think you store the latest changes to the data rather than execute a whole data replication. That's a savings in network bandwidth and data handling costs. But you can still reconstruct the complete data set at any given point in time.

That sounds like a really great idea, both for regular checks and to aid in recovering from a data disaster: "a snapshot captures a version of the entire system at a given point in time. The snapshot can be referenced to rebuild lost files if at some point data is destroyed or lost."
