Add Initial Seeding support for ASR
We need the ability to seed ASR. Customer's who have terabytes of data on-premises and don't have a huge upload pipe need this ability. I'd like to be able to kick off the ASR job onto something like the Azure Data Box, and ship it to Azure to import the jobs. Then we can do normal deltas with ASR into Azure.
Support will be delivered for migration scenarios. In DR scenarios customer bandwidth requirement for delta replication and initial replication are similar. Hence not planned for DR scenarios
Any ETA when pre-seeding may be available? This is hugely important for migrating clients to Azure.
