General availability: Support for large disk backup and improvements for backup/restore
Published date: 16 March, 2018
Azure Backup now supports backup of large disk VMs, and recent improvements reduce the time taken for backup and restore. These updates are based on a new VM backup stack and are available for both managed and unmanaged disks.
You can seamlessly upgrade to this new stack without any impact to your ongoing backup jobs. There's no change to how you set up backup or restore.
