 Benefits: Seriously reduce server maintain costs (+snapstore day by day become popular)

iii.snap store metrics - (or
    (metrics can be sync to main server per 4-6 hrs same as mirror update interval)

(Additional client facilities)
Sign-in - As i know it use for get access to private and unlisted apps. In this cause, it can connect to canonical servers directly for provide access to account and match(retrieve) ID of particular app then client know where has it on mirror server to download

Private stores/ Brand store - You can get benefit from this feature request to fulfill many expected desires
