Description

Currently images are cleaned after one day (on Azure) and this is too short.
For example, we may need older images to revalidate some part or the latest images can be broken and not usable.

Maybe better to either keep the images one week or a number of images (the last and 2 mores, so images at the same time?)

Option 1) Keeping images for X days:
Easy and quick to implement.
We make sure the image is deleted always. -> GOOD
We might end up in a lot of images when the images are released frequently. -> BAD

Option 2) Keep last 2 images:
More complex.
Flexibility to pick previous image if new image is broken -> GOOD (main reason for this ticket)
We will always keep 2 images "forever" and waste resources (waste money) if there are no releases and we are not using them. -> BAD

Option 3) Keep last 2 images and delete them after X days
This way, we make sure that we allow people to use "older" images and at the same time we make sure images are deleted after X days and not leave them forever wasting money.
