Volume Backups

Registered by francis moorehead on 2012-11-22

This blueprint adds support for backing up user volumes to Swift. This backup service will allow the user to create, restore and delete backups as well as listing backups and showing the details of a specific backup.
The term backup as used in this blueprint refers to a copy of the original volume which is stored on Swift. This backup is independent of the original volume and may be used for archival and disaster recover purposes. This is distinct from a snapshot of the volume which may be generated using techniques such as copy-on-write and have dependencies on the original volume.
