It controls the number of backups for each VM so if this number is two
this means you can have at most 2 backups of this VM on the backup
storage at any given time.

For manual backups this means a backup job will fail if there is
already 2 backups of this VM at the storage. For the automatic backup
schedule it means the backup scheduler will add a new backup and if
this backup succeeds it will delete the oldest backup ensuring there is
only 2 backups at any given time.
