Curently we do not have option to seed Image based backup jobs in the Backup Server. In order to perform Image based backups, we insists customers to deploy the backup server locally (on-premise) and we feel there is no need of seed option in this deployment.

OK thanks - Acronis it is then.. I have a server that is 27TB, you want me to stream this over wire ? That wont work, Using a san we can make a copy of the Server then move to site etc..

Thanks for your update and we understand your requirement. Normally for image backups, we are suggesting to deploy the backup server locally, so we thought, there is no need of Seed. And as you said, when there is a large amount of data, then its good to have a seed option to avoid backups through network. We already have this Seed option in our Vembu NetworkBackup product (for Files & Applications). We will try to integrate the same feature in our VMBackup and ImageBackup products as well in our upcoming releases ASAP.
