Azure Backup Server On-Premise

Hey guys,

We have a requirement to include the Azure Backup Server (On-Premise). However the environment has two physical Windows 2008R2 servers with volumes that are required to be backed up, which are over 1.7TB in size. We could potentially convert the physical servers into Hyper V machines, if that takes care of the issue.

Now checking this article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/backup/backup-azure-backup-faq#what-can-i-back-up

It states that for Server 2008 R2, you cannot backup volumes over 1.7TB, but i’m not sure if that is relating to the Azure Backup Agent (MARS) or it is inclusive of all the Azure Backup Services (Including the on-premise Azure Backup Server).

Has anyone deployed MABS for volumes over 1.7TB in size on Server 2008R2?

Thanks
