Support backup import on another Storage database

Registered by Ronen Mesonzhnik on 2015-11-24

This backup service can use a backup extra metadata in order
to import a backup on a different Block Storage.

Currently a volume backup can only be restored on the same Block
Storage service. This is because restoring a volume from a backup
requires metadata available on the remote database.

This proposal is to store backup metadata together
with the data, so a user will be able to restore a volume backup
on another Block Storage.
