BlobStorage account type is not supported for backup?

I am trying to create an Operational Backup for an Azure Storage account of type BlobStorage, NOT General Purpose v2. Documentation here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/backup/blob-backup-configure-manage

I get errors hinting that I need to upgrade my storage account to General Purpose 2.

Is GP2 required for backups?

@MelbyPatrickW-7189 Currently it's not supported! “Backup of Azure Blobs is currently in the works, I don't have ETA (GA) for now! You can keep a watch on Azure updates

We are planning to launch the limited preview for operational backup of blobs very soon. You can sign up using the following form so we can enable the required subscriptions to use blob backup and notify you once it’s available: https://aka.ms/AB-BlobBackup-SignUp

To give you a glimpse of what the operational backup solution will offer, check out this short demo: https://aka.ms/AB-BlobBackup.
Would also urge you to fill out this survey to help us understand your requirements better and if this solution meets them.
