Azure Backup now supports cross regions restore of your backups which uses RA-GRS redundancy.

This is a very important feature for our enterprise customers! Many of them are regulated and require evidence that data is region resilient and recoverable. Please update us on the current status. Many thanks.

The storage account (geo) failover is previewed.
Are there any updates to information about RS Vault failover or access to RS Vault at the secondary site?
Please let me know if there is a future preview function announcement schedule.
