Geodata Service for Large Enterprise Geodatabase

I am working with a 10.1 SDE geodatabase that contains hundreds of tables, feature classes, and mosaic datasets.

This geodatabase has been successfully registered with ArcGIS Server (10.1).

Now I am trying to create a Geodata Service (in ArcCatalog) using the same SDE connection file that was used when the geodatabase was registered with ArcGIS Server, but the whole process grinds to a halt with no sign of progress during the Analyze/Publish step.

My hope is that it will eventually finish if I leave ArcCatalog running (~1hr in at the time of this post), but what I'd like to know is what is causing this process to take so incredibly long and whether or not there is any to speed it up.

On a related note, I also tried the "Stage Service" Geoprocessing Tool to try creating an SD file using an SD-Draft.  This approach appears to suffer from the same performance problem as the Publish Service wizard.

Has anyone else ran into a similar issue?
