Start/Stop cluster HDInsight
The possibility to start and stop a cluster. Now is only available delete the cluster and I do not want any charge unnecessarily if I don't use the cluster for several days.
Thanks for the feedback here. When we designed the system, we considered delete == stop as the state is externalized. We’ve heard this feedback a few times and are considering making this clearer.

Great idea. Similarly I'd like to be able to scale my cluster up or down (i.e. add or remove data nodes).
