    Hi, @Anshal Thank you for posting your question on Microsoft Q&A and for using Azure services.
    For SQL MI we can go up to 16 TB..
    the piece you need to watch out for closely is the required core count - this is also dependent on the tier
    For example, to get the 16 TB max in the BC tier you need the memory-optimized hardware (still in preview) and the maximum number of vCores please check this document here

    Under the service tier characteristics, there is a chart. Take a look at the max instance storage size
    if you are planning to go with the GP tier, you need a minimum of 16 vCores
    if BC tier, for 10 TB you need memory-optimized and 64 vCores (which is a bit expensive)

    please let me know if you need any additional information.

    Maybe you got something mixed up...

    MI is up to 2 Terabyte
    Hyperscale is up to 100 Terabyte

    you are talking about 10 Gigabyte

    10GB are 0.01 TB
