  1. Seeding a large Azure Backup Server restore using export service

    We can seed initial backup to Azure backup Vault using the import service but we cannot seed a large restore using the Export service. Restoring a large volume of data could take several days or even weeks!

  2. seed backup without using an external drive

    To be able to upload the data from an alternative site with has a much faster internet connection and upload speed without having to rely on configuring a drive to be shipped to Microsoft.

  3. Make Offline Seed Backup A One Step Process - Why Stage It First?

    When you want to seed your initial backup using the Azure Import Service you have to do a backup to a disk first (obviously). However, this is a 2 step process:

    1 - The backup is done to a Staging area
    2 - The backup is then copied to the disk you want to ship to Microsoft

    Why do we have to stage the backup first? Why can't the backup be done straight to the disk you want to send to Microsoft?

    When you are working with terabytes of data this is very time consuming.

  4. Offline Seeding using Azure Data Box

    Right now the offline seeding to Azure supports the Import-Export service, but no option to support the new Azure Databox or Datadisk are given.
