Support backup and restore of volumes created by VMDK driver

Registered by Vipin Balachandran on 2014-06-27

The volumes created by the VMDK driver are virtual disks stored in datastores managed by ESX or vCenter server. Currently, backup_volume and restore_backup APIs are not supported for these volumes. This blueprint proposes implementation of these APIs for VMDK driver.
