Ability to view backup storage usage via Portal, Powershell, or DMV
As there is currently a $0.10/GB charge for PiTR storage over the size of the database size it will be important to have a way to view backup storage usage so you can best plan how long to have your retention set to best optimize your billing.
If possible this could be a property in Get-AzSqlDatabase and Get-AzSqlElasticPool.

This is much needed ASAP to gain visibility to what we actually are going to pay for. I would go that far, saying that this shoud have been availalble before you started to charge us!

I'm glad to hear you are developing an API for this as not having visibility into the backup usage is causing a lot of trouble since we cannot manage these costs without it.

@Cameron B, thank you for the feedback. We are developing an API to visualize the running backup storage usage. Your suggestion is one of the options we are evaluating. So stay tuned.
