We really need to be able to stop/suspend a BizTalk Service, without being billed for it
For dev/test scenarios, we really need to be able to stop/suspend a BizTalk Service container.
Now we have two options:
- Pay a lot, to not lose our instance
- Delete and recreate our service everytime again, when we need to give a demo or do dev. And then we have to upload everything, add all our partners, etc. (or use scripted deployment for that)
I expect a premium cloud service to have this option by default. Especially when economics is used as a sales argument in cloud.
Thanks for the feedback. We will review this requirement.

Look at the support forums and see all the customer and Microsoft resources being spent on backup/restore of Azure BizTalk Services. What a complete waste. Microsoft can do better here..

Seriously, the current pricing burns all my MSDN credits before my month is up.
