    I agree. Also for small businesses on a poor connection, the backup just kills the internet(sometimes throttling helps), it needs to have a "business hours" period in which the backup stops and then resumes where it left off.

    We've started deploying Azure Cloud Backup at several small businesses and we frequently find with the throttling not set that regardless of the speed of the connection the backup will saturate the outbound bandwidth to the point that no one can do anything until it's completed, it's been a major thorn in our side as many of these customers previously had Carbonite which has none of these problems. We've also noticed a pattern of DSL(768kbps upload) == Cloud Backups mysteriously always "complete with errors" or just fail outright.
