Hi everyone,

I'm not sure I really understand what's the benefice of backup (cyrus>3.x) vs
replication ?

Is the main goal are to save disk space with compression ? Less inode (with
large file) ?

I believe the add backup feature to cyrus-imapd was/still very lots of
work. So what's the advantage of backup vs replication_over_compress_fs.
