With this we are announcing a limited public preview availability of LTR backup for up to 10 years for Managed Instance for EA and CSP subscriptions. There are limited number of seats available for whitelisting subscriptions and will be fulfilled on the first come – first serve basis. For customers enrolled, production support will be provided. The feature is now available through PowerShell only. Azure portal should be coming in a few months. To sign up create Azure support ticket: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/sql-database/sql-database-long-term-retention#managed-instance-support
We sincerely appreciate your feedback.

This is something that we are looking at as part of bringing Cloud Services into the future. We’ll have more details in the coming months in this space and at that time we will provide more details on this feature.

This idea is still in our blacklog. We are working to see if the functionality can be enabled with something similar to our low-priority VMs which are currently in preview.
