  1. Exclude Disks from VM Backup

    Currently it's not possible to exclude Disks from a Hyper-V VM backup. (except using the Exclude Pagefile Disk workaround) to exclude single disks from the backup.

    The possibility to exclude disks from a hyper-v vm backup would be a great improvement in case you've really large fileservers or other workloads where another backup mechanism is in place or you simply dont want a backup because of temp data etc.

  2. Azure backup of Azure IaaS VM to a different region

    It would be ideal if we could push the Azure backup of our Azure IaaS Vms to a different region. This would give people a lot more peace of mind in the event of a datacentre failure.

  3. Allow VM Extension to talk directly to vault without internet access

    Many customers do not want to grant their IaaS VMs direct access to the internet. Forced tunneling prevents the Azure Backup Service from protecting Azure IaaS VMs. If the Azure Backup VM Extension was allowed to talk directly the Recovery Service Vault through internal traffic in the datacenter, VMs would not need Internet access for backups to complete successfully.

  4. Increase the limit of data disk number supported by azure backup

    Azure backup supports up to 16 data disks attached to an Azure virtual machine for backup. Please remove the restriction or match the max data disks for G series
