Admin API to create and restore backups

Registered by Vipul Sabhaya on 2013-07-10

Create an Admin API that allows an admin user to create a backup on behalf of a customer. Also to restore that backup onto a new instance that is created on the customer's behalf.

This will support future use cases with automated backups, and potentially automated failover, where an admin user will be required to perform these operations.
