Azure Backup Size Limit Increased to 54 TB from 1.7 TB

Azure Backup is Microsoft’s cloud backup solution that enables enterprises to backup data to the cloud virtual machine instances, databases, file repositories or any other content.  Combined with Azure Site Recovery, Microsoft provides a comprehensive Availability on Demand service that works as a cloud based failover environment for your organization.

Microsoft has just announced an increase in the maximum size for a data source from 1700 GB to 54400 GB (54 terabytes).  For those organizations that have more than 2 TB in a single repository this will be a welcome change and provide more opportunity to leverage the service.
