Use SQL Backup with Compression for the backup task
With CM 1511, SMS Backup task enabled by default. And that does a volume shadow copy of the DB which means full-sized files. For my tiny lab that means I'm backing up 8 GB alone.
For production it'll mean 850GB per primary site. Under CM12 when we backup just SQL using compression, it's just 160GB per primary site.
Please allow an option to just invoke a database backup instead so that compression can be used and I don't need to go order terabytes of data just for backups.
Also the current backup just erases the last backup. But in a hierarchy situation, I want 5 days of data to be backed up.

I'm really hoping we see this in an early 2017 Tech Preview.
