Light Touch, Self-Service, and Zero-Touch

Swimage can be initiated using various methods.  Light Touch and Self-Service are one of the most common ways to initialize Swimage.  Both methods require a user to start the process.  Light Touch and Self-Service migrations Future States can be configured prior to starting to the process or configured at the machine when stating the process.  Zero-Touch is the other method of initializing Swimage.  Zero-Touch requires that the Future State and Computer information be uploaded into the Swimage Server before starting the migration.
