That's an interesting approach. I also wanted to add logic to remove only a 1-week old backup but it was not important at that time, so I skipped it. My intention in using alpine was to reduce the image size. Even I was considering setting up the cron job outside of the image, on the host.

I have created this image to take backup on GCS and I believe this will work for any object storage system which supports s3 protocol as we are doing only 1 operation, which is just uploading the zip.

I have created one more image which zips the folder and upload it to DO Spaces using go and minio. Feel free to checkout.
