I am suggesting the ability for a server admin to download server backups and store them locally with the additional capability of uploading them to restore a server. The importance of this is to preserve a server if, for any reason, the server is deleted. This could be due non-renewal (and missing the 5 day grace period) suspending the server to bring it back up after a bit of time, or restoring a server from crash/corruption.
Backups in the cloud are not sufficient as they are not saved past a server deletion (5 days after non-renewal). If a clan (or individual) misses the auto-renewal for any reason, the entire server is lost with no method of recovery, even if they re-subscribe. This, of course, is sometimes enough for people to abandon the game or move on to another (for those that do not periodically reset in the first place).
Minecraft Realms (XBox One) is a good example of this ability. Those backups can be downloaded, saved, played locally, and uploaded back to the server.
This is more important for console players as they have no other means of hosting/saving private servers, unlike PC players.
