Interested in a daily project snapshot service?
Since a few weeks, microStudio has a new, very cool backup system, based on the BTRFS file system. Warm thanks to my good friend @Mattamore for setting this up for me :-)
With this new system running, it would be very feasible to add a project recovery service to microStudio. It would allow you to download an archive of your project, as it was yesterday, a week ago, a month ago, or any
x days ago in fact. I am sure some of you would be interested in this service, however I would like to ask first:
- if such a service already existed, how often do you think you would have used it? How often would you plan to use it in the future?
- do you think I could ask users to pay for such a service? If yes, please tell me how you see it working (is it pay-per-use? is it part of some premium account?)
I am just exploring ideas for now, definitely not trying to monetize microStudio at all costs. microStudio itself will always be free and I have no problem continuing to run it without direct revenue for years. But it could be interesting to build a revenue stream from additional services!
