Ability to replicate storage fusion backup and restore service protection

When we backup the service protection to an s3 compliant backup location, the service protection cannot be replicated to another s3 compliant backup location say at a DR site.  It would be ideal if we can replication the service protection backup to another location and have the ability to restore that to another s3 backup location and be able to see all the backups even if the original s3 backup location is not available.  Currently, the original s3 compliant backup location needs to be available in order to restore the service protection backups, but what happens when that original location is down / unavailable.  Being able to replication the service protection and the instance backups to another s3 compliant backup location and also being able to restore the service protection and instance backup to another s3 compliant backup location when the original s3 compliant backup location is not available would be a great enhancement especially in a DR scenario.
