New S3 plan for sandboxes

In the past, we’ve had issues with users being notified of a sandbox purge even though the sandbox didn’t actually get cleared. So in order to provide a more seamless experience, cloud.gov now offers S3 service plans for sandboxes that automatically clear your S3 contents whenever your sandbox is cleared.

As a result, if you intend on storing important files in your sandbox, you must implement some type of backup scheme.

The two plans available for your sandbox are basic-sandbox and basic-public-sandbox. The behavior of these service plans is the same as basic and basic-public respectively, with the only exception being that the buckets are cleared any time cf delete-service SERVICE_INSTANCE is run on these plans.
