    Support Backup of Snapshots for Managed Storage

        This PR adds an ability to Pass a new parameter, locationType,
        to the “createSnapshot” API command. Depending on the locationType,
        we decide where the snapshot should go in case of managed storage.
    
        There are two possible values for the locationType param
    
        1) `Standard`: The standard operation for managed storage is to
        keep the snapshot on the device. For non-managed storage, this will
        be to upload it to secondary storage. This option will be the
        default.
    
        2) `Archive`: Applicable only to managed storage. This will
        keep the snapshot on the secondary storage. For non-managed
        storage, this will result in an error.
    
        The reason for implementing this feature is to avoid a single
        point of failure for primary storage. Right now in case of managed
        storage, if the primary storage goes down, there is no easy way
        to recover data as all snapshots are also stored on the primary.
        This features allows us to mitigate that risk.
