Now the amount of storage we can present to a Veeam Cloud Connect infrastructure is dependent of the Azure VM size (max 64 disks -> high cost for this VM).
It would be nice to offload backup data from on-prem to Azure via the Veeam Cloud Connect infrastructure OR directly to Azure Storage blob account (like in Veeam Cloud Edition).
Azure VM's don't really do the job because of the capacity limit.

One of the biggest issues I see with that request is that it can take ages to download the backup again and recover... When there is no compute attached to the storage, you can't do item level recovery, and downloading a full backup to restore one file will be costly + if there is a real disaster, downloading all backups will significantly slow down the recovery process. It could take days or longer before you can even start recovering something.
So if you talk about placing backups onto Blob storage, can you live with the above? Or are you seeing it differently (then just putting the backups on that storage)
Let me know
I would agree with Nichola that this feature is a must. Backup data in Azure Blob Storage would be for long term retention (i.e tape replacement). I do agree that MS StorSimple and an NTAP Altavault can push data directly to Blob Storage quite efficiently but there is a cost element to it. Azure VM's don't really do the job because of the capacity limit. I would prefer to have a storage with "unlimited bucket" that I can use. CommVault Simpana can do this natively. I did hear that Microsoft DPM can do this as well (can't verify this at this point though)
